    I believe this post is supposed to reference the house at 1560 Henry Clay Avenue which was recently denied a demolition permit. This photo is NOT THAT HOUSE. You can even see the address reads “1343” or “7542” but clearly not “1560.” The real 1560 Henry Clay is not nearly as high-quality a house as this. I really hope this is an isolated, honest mistake and that misinformation like this is not common on this site.

  • Sorry for the error. We will correct it in the next day or so.

  • Will do today…
