Starting initiative

714 McCabe Avenue was demolished quickly. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, Councilman Bill Henry, and Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano joined other officials and residents in the 700 block of McCabe Avenue for the first demolition in the "Vacants to Value" initiative to reduce blight. Five vacant houses will be demolished in the Woodbourne-McCabe Community, seven other vacant properties will be sold or addressed in an alternative strategy, and 23 properties will be rehabbed.
