"How is urban renewal affecting the lives of people along 14th Street?" Staff writer Joann Stevens and photographer Robert Malone went to the 14th Street corridor to ask residents their views. Leroy Douglas, 26, unemployed, resident at 15th Street and Park Road NW: "Anything new around here would be beneficial. But urban renewal prices for apartments are definitely too high. Plus there's no money. I'd like to see more jobs and fixing up the old houses. Even if you have urban renewal you can't get an apartment if there's No money circulating in the community." Tyrone Monroe, 21, student at the University of the District of Columbia, resident at 13th and Harvard Streets: "There's a lot of upgrading in the neighborhood. A lot of people are moving back into the community, stores are being rebuilt and you see 14th street coming back." Maria Ruiz, 21, student, resident at Columbia Road and 14th Street NW: "I would like to see more apartments because we have a terrible house where I live. They (the landlords) don't come to visit or nothing." Tyrone Thompson, 28, co-owner of The Good Things shop at 3000 14th Street NW: "The way I see it, 65 per cent of the people who have lived here will move back into urban renewal houses but they'll be subsidized. You have to have an income mixture to have the kind of area urban renewal is striving for. I'm a businessman. I cannot survive off low income people. Before the riots it wasn't just low income people up here. You had a tax base." Delorse Thompson, 27, sales person, resident at 15th and R Street NW: "Urban renewal is a very slow and people don't seem to be too happy about it up here. They're being moved out of their houses. A few are going to Maryland and Southeast. Where the rest are going I don't know." Gwendolyn Watkins, 21, student at Federal City College, resident at 14th Street and Columbia Road NW: "Urban renewal should be beneficial if the people know how to take care of the apartments. I hope they build apartments all up and down here because we need places to live. There's a lot of good people on the street." Joseph Wynn, 24, clerk-typist, resident at Georgia Avenue and Otis Place NW: "The people in this area are not going to be able to afford the apartments they're building in this area. The houses are even worse. They're taking a house in this area, renovating it and charging $60,000 and up. The down payment is $5,000 cash! How can the average black person afford that? It seems they're trying to move the black out."
