Nov 26 2013 Orange Mound: Appreciation vs. Depreciation of Our Urban Areas Posted by sthmas20 Mr. Amos Conner Tha Mound Black Owned Business Black Owned Business Church. Hanley Elementary, seized by Aspire Schools. One park built on top of another. The old park remains hidden by the new face on Park Avenue. The old park centered open and abandoned. A police station located on Carnes Avenue (a street that sees a fair amount of crime by itself), but completely abandoned. For all of the homes within Orange Mound, many look like this. On the other hand, there are homes like these spread throughout the neighborhood. These just so happened to be directly facing Dunbar Elementary. A common site in urban neighborhoods, shoelaces tied to a pole either symbolize a death or they’re thrown in the act of bullying. Realtors and owners are still going to lengthy measures to sell homes without making them presentable. Neglecting the property and the area overall. The resolution. “Stop the Violence, Cut the Beef”.
