  1. its a shame... they were like or was a "real" home to many people including my family from 1969 to 1985 . The people that lived in them really didn't have the money to put into them to fix up and besides they didn't own them... but the people that did own them aka the city / state didn't put money back into them... they were just worried about a BIGGER pay check every year , I will miss these homes . I always think about "what could have been" with them at one time , yes they were great when we moved in but as the years went back... they went down hill . Some of the fault goes to the city / state for not putting money back into them and also the "people" they let move in... as with everything else in LIFE it comes down to MONEY , GOODBYE Liddonfield !!!!!!!!!!!!
