Sweater #31

Sweater 31This sweater was placed only a few blocks from my home and clearly says it all about the state of our economy, abundance of abandoned buildings and the number of displaced formerly housed people.  Where do people go when buildings are boarded up? Are they couch surfing, doubling up with other families, living in vehicles or just roaming the streets? And then of course, what happens to the building?  The bank owned property is clearly serving no purpose and is an economic drain to investors and the general public.  In addition, this building exemplifies how large an impact this crisis is making as it is located in a fairly economically stable community.
