I take the BUS to the VA for my appointment. This trip is interesting because it covers one of the worst areas of the East Side. From Troost and Armour, to the VA Medical Center, which is at Linwood and Van Brunt. Didn’t take any pictures on the way there, because the bus windows were so grimy, but it’s one of the worst areas. MANY boarded up houses, and abandoned business. There are huge piles of trash sitting out on the curb, laying around all over the place. One of the worst areas for Urban Blight, but still, life goes on there. People own homes. Work, live their lives. But it’s a terrifying part of the city. I take the TroostMax NORTH.. then the 35 Bus EAST.. to arrive at the VA.
