Guest post and photo by the Hawthorne Hawkman
I was driving through the EcoVillage today and noticed a demo crew in front of the infamous house at 3020 6th St N. A crew was prepping the house for its demolition. This is progress, victory, a statement of power, even, that the days of open-air drug dealing and prostitution in the area are slipping farther and farther into the past. The Hmong family next door was reportedly thrilled to see the house coming down.
Thanks to the arson at the property, largely suspected to have been carried out by Evannor Haymon or an associate, and the fact that the Devil has taken up residence at 3007 3rd St N we know there's still work to do. But this is a victory nonetheless.
