All the other pics were awesome with all the houses and everything but THIS ONE was my favorite. I drool when I see Urban settings such as these. It reminds me of ny from the 80's and early 90's. Heck, it looks like and reminds me of some areas of ny today!
The tallest one has been renovated since that picture was taken. The entire backside (what you see) has changed. The fire escapes have been removed (I'm not sure if they are being replaced or if they are even needed anymore). The brick has been power washed, and the windows have been replaced.
Here is a Google Maps Streetview of the backside during the renovation.
