Baltimore Ghost Neighborhoods

In this Oct. 26, 2020 photo, vacant rowhomes are visible from resident Nayeka Scott’s living room in the Harlem Park neighborhood of Baltimore. A sea of roughly 16,000 uninhabitable row homes with weeds growing out of boarded-up windows are symbols of this city’s enduring social divide. Housing researchers say some 20,000 other city properties are unoccupied and pose a latent risk of becoming crumbling shells in the future.
