The house at 2024 W. Cary is an eyesore. It's been boarded up for years. It's covered in graffiti. It looks ready to collapse. It's really out of place in the neighborhood. It probably needs to be fixed or condemned; hard to believe it can remain ins such neglect on West Cary as the city is hoping to upgrade that stretch.
The bar located in the basement of the Gresham Court apartment building on Stuart Circle (1600 Monument Ave.) has multiple signs and visual displays on this historic corner, and the collection is increasing. Doesn't being in the Monument Avenue Historic District protect the area from such seemingly inappropriate commercial displays?
Just pulled into the alley behind the 200 block of Strawberry St. between Grove and Hanover and a woman with a backpack and sleeping bag was sitting in the alley by the garages. She looked out of it and we asked her to move on. We have found whippets and lighters for the past several weeks. We'd like for the police to patrol these areas at night to see what is going on here. Thanks for your help.
