Washington, DC

A Very Sad Sight

I saw this on New Hampshire Ave just south of Georgia. It looks like there was an eviction. But it was gigantic, I couldn’t get all the items in one photo. It nearly stretched the whole block. It’s so sad that things get to this level.

Incidentally there was an article in the San Francisco Chronicle that says:

“Next year, many option ARM payments will begin to readjust, slamming borrowers with dramatically higher monthly mortgage bills. Analysts say that could unleash the next big wave of foreclosures – and home-loan data show that the risky loans were heavily used in the Bay Area.”

Hopefully this doesn’t hit the DC area to hard. Whatever the reason, it is truly heartbreaking to see the scene in the photo above.
