Painting Brick


I hadn't considered the high build loxon as a follow up step. I may pass on that step. This is a rental unit - an old 3 story row house in a series of row house that all pretty are clones. The two apartments have been completely renovated. I'm hoping that if I do maybe not an 'A' job (that would be one where say I planned on living there myself for 20 years or something) - but a 'B+' job, then some of these other what I call slum landlords might consider doing the same thing. Probably not but at least I can hope.

Thanks for your help.

This is something people I know are working on now. They are gonna start fining the city for homes that are not kept up as well as federal building that are dirty and sidewalks that are cracked, uneven or algae ridden. Too much tax money is taken for the city to not use it properly. We are going to propose a set time to start the ball and if not a lawsuit will be pressed naming the city council members.

Any homes in urban settings are gonna have to start applying anti graffiti coatings so when they are tagged it will be washed off easily daily.

Much more in the works, but people have to start taking pride. Where I am from in Jacksonville, fl had the same problem with the historic district all along the lower income areas as well and it was all cleaned up. looks like a new place with the new sidewalks, streets and painted buildings.

Of Coarse it did take getting the super Bowl to run things along quickly

I hear that. I'm currently living in Lancaster, PA. This is a city that use to be a nice place until the riffraff from NJ and NYC starting taking root. It also is the most densely populated inland city in the US of A. Founded in 1737. Our mayor has taken a pro-active stance toward absentee landlords and the like. I'm all for it even though I own rentals. By fixin' them up, I get a better cliental and increase the value of my property. Now each rental property here in the city must be inspected once every five years. Ya get on the wrong side of a city inspector - sure they can turn out to be an A hole. For the most part, my experiences with them have been positive, however.

Hee, Hee. I lived in Jerksonville for quite some time. Was there the first two years after the Jags came into existence. For awhile I rented a house on College St. right off of Cassat Av. Used to be a Krispy Creme down the street. Many is the time I stopped in there when the sign was flashing in the window. I remember the Edgewood area quite well and thought that it had a lot of potential.

Another fellow J-Ville person :>) I remember being a little kid and my Dad taking me to that window to watch them make the donuts. He used to work at the Winn-Dixie to the right of it. They closed that Winn-Dixie however.I know Cassat Ave, Edgewood and college st well. Edgewood had nice spots on it. Depended what end you were near :>)

I was working for my Grandpas company when the news came over the radio that we were awarded a franchise. I still remember the TV stations airing what we should call the team. Someone said call it the Jacksonville Drug Lords lol. I was thinking why bring truth into the name :>0

San Jose and and San Marco had some nice areas in there. High dollar people in "Bungalos" codeword for small expensive homes
