Bland and Ugly Urban Infill

Post some pictures of urban infill that is pretty ugly, and has little to be desired.

That isn't horrible infill. The first is without doubt better than the second, but it isn't that horrid. Is the second infill or is it a historic house that has been destroyed?

americans should start build real buildings and not these woodshaks. they get blown away by tornadoes, need a lot energy for heating in winter and maybe as much energy for cooling in summer...

Wood is a very popular building material in the US. A great deal of the nation's housing stock is made of wood, even new ones. Also, tornadoes are common but they rarely destroy whole towns, many of the wood frame houses built in the 19th century still stand strong.
