Yesterday, I reported on the petty vandalism at a property being renovated by John Fena, an unstoppable force for good in the neighborhood. My blog post, click here, didn't mention the address but it's 1209 25th Ave. N.
In following up, it seems good and right to illustrate how well things are going at that beautiful property despite the minor frustrating setback of the vandalism. That house was, incredibly, once a source of neighborhood blight. But the photo above shows what John Fena, et al, have been accomplishing at renovating, revitalizing and transforming the property.
John Fena...you are Johnny Northside's hero.
