Today's 8.1 mile walk in the Industrial District is not one I'm likely to repeat. It had its points of interest but the area supports shipping and heavy industry and I vied with trucks for walking space. The truck drivers all seemed to notice a pedestrian but the area was dusty and had lots of pot holes.
There were signs of development and tidy streets with newer buildings and sidewalks
I saw quite a few moving trains and heard train whistles blowing.
This is not a residential area but I did see two houses, one boarded up and the other, almost next door to it, looking pristine.
