    I’m pretty sure those two houses were part of art installations supported by KK Projects/ Kirsha Kaechele. Are they just being abandoned now that Prospect.1 is over? I hope not.

    i’m not a very good writer. my talent lies in the kitchen.

    what i was trying to say in the above comment is i would like to know about some houses in my block that have been abandoned and have been broken into by vagrants on several occasions since katrina.

    the hot orange spray paint has been on the curb for over a year.

    now i hear the city is gonna flip them to a charity.

    just wanna know what’s going on in my block.

    cant find any info on the city website or google.

    thank you in advance.

    Post the address and let me do some digging. The Feds are actively investigating any properties that the City or employees of the city are flipping right now. Please post the address and we can start the process of finding out who is involved.
