Little Rock’s forgotten community

plainclothesmanQUESTION: I was driving through town, cruising by the Clinton School of Public Service and Heifer International. I hit 6th street, took a left and ended up in the East Little Rock neighborhood. I kept driving down 6th street and stumbled upon this huge eerie development that made me feel like I was in the movie 28 days later. All the windows in this development which was made up of six or seven rather large units were blown out. You could see old mattresses and papers strewn about…it seemed as if the people had to run for their lives or something. I drove to 9th street, made a left and saw single family houses that looked the same. Really spooky. I’ve asked friends but no one seems to know what happened much less what this place is or was… What can you find out? Thanks, Liz.
