45 Lenox Street Hartford, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

My great-grandfather Morris’ owned this house on Lenox Street in Hartford, Connecticut. It is in ROUGH shape and in a ROUGH neighborhood. There is an auction sign on the front fence. It used to be a beautiful neighborhood.

A sign of the times I guess, too bad though!

Sad to see it in such bad shape now.

Hope seeing the house and surrounding area didn’t make you too sad.

Sad indeed. Was that originally a single home or was it built for multiple families?

It is a duplex and then each side has an apartment on each floor. New England has lots of these kinds of houses. We also have 3 deckers (Karen has taken pics of them a lot). I didn’t even take pictures of the worst of the area … not the neighborhood to be taking pics in.

Thanks for the explanation. We have some similar here in Ottawa too…

Sad to see fine building like this in rough condition.
