I live in Riverside county, California - where a lot of the phtotos are taken.. I could post up hundreds of neighbourhoods where over half the houses are empty. Homeowner associations sometimes spray paint dead lawns green in an attempt to make these places seem less apocalyptic.
I used to live in Buffalo, NY, where getting the Seneca Nation Casino built was supposedly a huge issue. I can only laugh at the irony, from a safe distance of course. Buffalo's probably got a better chance than any ironically to get through this, since most of its citizens have already been living in an economic depression since the late 90's.
This makes me glad that I converted my car to run on the dashed hopes and dreams of America's middle class. If I can only get the orphan tears-and-aborted-fetus home heating conversion done I will be set.
I highly recommend subscribing to The Big Picture's rss feed. They post some incredible photos.
