So the landlady's mom (who lives across from me) decided to chat up Joce and told her to let me know to clean up the front of my place because the owner of Canterbury (who I think nile_red
or someone sleuthed to be a senator?) was coming to visit to check out the apartments. Word has it he's planning to invest half a million into fixing it up, and of course raising rent. They plan to tear down 22 and 23 (and probably others) and clean up everyone's nasty backyards.
