WHYY’s Peter Crimmins reports the Preservation Alliance For Greater Philadelphia has released its annual list of endangered buildings today. It features one example of what the Alliance says will be a growing problem with historic buildings: foreclosure. A house on historic Elfreth’s Alley has been abandoned mid-renovation by the homeowners; its been forclosed, the mortgage is owned by two (as yet unidentified) banks, and it’s infested with mold from a leaky roof. The Alliance says it’s a harbinger.
Peter will have a full report this afternoon on All Things Considered.
