Death, taxes and a building that's gonna fall
Well I took a look on the property tax database and 1607 is owned by Arvid W Broadus who is receiving the Senior Citizen Homestead Deduction. Mr. Broadus is dead. According to the Social Security Death Index he died last year 16 Jan 2009 (born 30 Sep 1919) and unfortunately he didn't make it to his 90 birthday. Unfortunately for us, and anyone walking by this structure, it hasn't turned over to the living.
ADDITION- Apparently people still read this blog, even journalists. It appears Channel 7 did a story on this house.
