"Boarded up shells and goats"

When I first moved to Detroit I was all about the adventure and exploring. Humboldt got explored. This is a sad little street. Bad roads and lined with wide open lots full of trash and boarded up houses. Even sadder is that between the trash and shells were broken down houses that people still lived in. I reviewed another Detroit street called Canfield, gushing about it's old style cobble streets. One block of Humboldt is still cobbled too but somehow it doesn't feel nearly as nostalgic.

Still amid all the ugly is a gleaming bright highlight of Detroit, the Catherine Ferguson Academy at the corner of Humboldt and Selden. It's an alternative school for pregnant teenage girls. Ok, social commentary aside, I think it's pretty awesome these girls get a 'second chance' so to speak. The school grounds run a full block up Humboldt and feature a barn and animals; chickens, goats maybe even horses though I didn't see any on my adventures.
