Of course, building these luxury apartments made jobs for these street guys. Right? No?

I suppose most feel this is progress, but I think it simply widens the gulf between the have's and have-not's in our country. Sobering comparison!

Jarart said...

I agree with Chuck. Great shots though, it's good to see how things were and are.

The new building somewhat resembles a popsicle on a stick.

The 2007 photo is excellent photography, and a sad statement.

The first photo is straight out of Walker Evans-ville. I hope it gets to be seen by a wide audience.
