There are 20 plus residents who have yet to move from their homes located between 55th-61st (Stewart to Parnell). The area is where the Norfolk Southern railroad expansion is taking place. Many residents and community activists are not only upset with the environmental concerns but also with the financial burden, unfairness and strong arm tactics that they say have been taking place since 2010.

Hello, Neighbours

I am an out of town investor and I am wondering what the neighbourhoods along 61st street are like? Would this be considered a war zone?

  • Mark Conroy Real Estate Investor

    When I get a chance I will. I'm actually out on the west coast, so its a bit of a commute...lol
