On the very day I had promised to make a very public stink about 2719 Lyndale Ave. N. if the graffiti slathered all over the front wasn't fixed by Neighborhood Housing Service Minneapolis, I have been made aware the graffiti is FIXED; see photo above.
(Hmmm. Is it just the angle I'm looking at, or is the snow not shoveled on the walkway?)
This slap-dash coat of ill-matching paint represents, well, a half-assed form of progress causing neighbors to rejoice in a very restrained way. Now the bigger question (and this blogger intends to keep asking it in a very public way) why hasn't this house, vacant since 2009, been renovated as everybody expected when NHS Minneapolis took control? Why has the "Lyndale Stepchild" been abused and neglected for half a decade?
