west 111th

west 111th - 1.jpg, originally uploaded by jonoliver.

the day i moved into my apt last year, i met a woman who lives in the house two doors down from this one. these three houses are the only houses on the block (the rest are big buildings). she told me how her mom had bought the house for next to nothing through the city on the condition that she fix it up. it looked pristine so i asked how had it looked before she started and she pointed to the house in the middle (which looked pretty much like this house). about 6 months into living here, the house in the middle transformed in a what seemed like a few short weeks. this is the last hold out, but someone just set up a wood construction wall in front so my favorite weeds won't be around much longer.
