What's blighted in Nashville??

It doesn’t seem to be Joy Ford’s property, but that owned by the developer could be a good candidate. Local blogger Kay Brooks took a walk to see what the neighborhood looked like. She took a few photos as well and also has this to say:

If this were my neighborhood, I’d have called codes on LionStone long ago and demanded a prompt mowing, trash removal and filling in of the puddles and potholes that could be mosquito breeding grounds. I’d also have checked with the local police department to ensure a trespass waiver was on file and the property posted to ensure that the fellow doing a steady business from the trunk of his car was encouraged to move on.

It’s landlords like LionStone that make neighborhood’s blighted, not Miss Joy. It’s just wrong that the property owner being a responsible neighbor is the one being forced out.
