My Next Door Neighbor is a Vacant House

There's an amazing photo essay by Camilo Jose Vergara on Slate. Its about decaying paired houses in Camden, New Jersey. If you know anything about Camden, you know its one of the poorest/decaying cities in America. What he did was take pictures of homes that are paired but one is abandoned/vacant and the other is occupied. The contrast is incredible. Take a look: http://www.slate.com/id/2212784/ (hit launch on the photo to see the slideshow)
