Goodbye to Mercy Street

A few days ago, Greg and I got a call from a local South Philly developer.  It turns out they are interested in razing the rowhomes on our street and putting up an apartment building.  We talked to a lawyer and there is not much we can do to resist.  They are giving us quite a bit more than we paid, which is nice, but it is also bittersweet because we have put our blood, sweat and tears into that house.  

So, thanks for reading, and hopefully before too long we'll find something else.

Nicole, when you called and told me about this yesterday, I really couldn't wrap my head around it. I can't believe it! There has to be some way to rally all the other homeowners on your street and get some other options. Even if you're making money, it's unfair!
