Year-long series of stories exploring the problem of vacant properties in Baltimore and how it was being addressed. Deconstructing Vacants was a grant-funded series.
Baltimore, like many older cities in America, has a problem with vacant houses that often stretch on for blocks, creating urban blight that depresses property values, stymies redevelopment efforts and serves as a hub for crime.
In this series, WYPR examines the issues behind the problem and the efforts to find solutions.
