Fixer Upper

In the span of 15 years, on a thriving Brooklyn block, no one has claimed this building and made it a home. Every dwelling around it has been gutted and renovated, but not this one. This building has stayed in a constant state of distress. There has been a scaffolding or 2 over the years, but they just teased the place. Nothing was ever done to make it livable. Nothing was ever done to make it a home.

I often wonder what it will look like once it's renovated and given people to keep safe and warm inside. I hope I see that day in the near future. Don't you?
