west downtown

dog got left at home again today while i did a loop over to vine city via techwood drive, centennial park, and magnolia street underpass--- fitbit figures it was 6.79 miles ---

grace towns hamilton's house (1950) is in ruinous condition and her father's house (1910) next door is fire damaged and boarded up --- the herndon house looks good but all of the morris brown buildings are boarded up and deteriorating ---

a great boulder marks the grave of atlanta university's first president, massachusetts-born edmund asa ware (1837-1885) ---
a sad lonely corner of the city these days

the sign says it's a "a true public-private partnership," whatever that means --- the taxpayers build a building that mercedes-benz can use for a billboard ---- grrrrrr
