Looking down 7th

The largest subject in this picture is the Ashbury Dwellings, which as I understand it, is subsidized housing for senior citizens. Sadly that lovely doorway serves as a hobo hangout, where homeless or drunk guys sleep it off. I almost never see anyone enter or leave from that door. I figure the residents use whatever door is closest to the parking lot in the rear.

Asbury Dwellings, used to be the Shaw School, from which we get the Shaw School Urban Renewal Area (SSURA) and the neighborhood name Shaw. Like Lincoln-Westmoreland, diangle from Asbury, it too was a church organized effort, with the Asbury United Methodist Church on 11th & K leading the effort.

My those are pretty windows.
