Up in the air once again...

...to see, thanks to Google Earth, the changes made Where The Ghetto Meets The Sea in the past 80 years....

Doesn't look that much different. Did they paint all the houses?

No doubt those houses that have survived have been repainted...I do wish the Google Earth image had been a bit clearer (it's a computer-generated alteration of straight-down photos) so you could see that the empty spaces between the 1926 houses have virtually vanished. The shape of the coastline/harbor is much different, as well.

That's cool! I cannot get it because I don't have 2000 or 2000xp.

I hope you get to meet Westy while she's in your neck of the woods! ((hugs)) Sunny
