"Another Troubled Neighborhood"

West Iowa Street goes through the neighborhood I grew up in, and my grammar school building is there. It is full of older two- and three- and more flat brick buildings, some beautifully taken care of, some in terrible disrepair. Recently the city saw the need to put islands in the middle of intersections, one has to assume to slow down the people who were drag racing through the streets. Pity because it was once a strong, middleclass neighborhood. Just before getting to Pulaski Road is Our Lady of the Angels Church and rectory and the School, which is now a charter school for the city. In 1958 the school burned down and 92 children and 3 teachers died. In 1960 the archdiocese built a new school on the site of the old one. The church is in pretty good repair considering, but is no longer a Catholic church.
