We enjoyed walking through the area. Talked to the artist briefly. It is free. Certainly worth a visit. There are people still living in the homes right in the middle of it. Another house has a guy who also considers himself an artist. He has...More

There a couple of cool installation art yard pieces. But overall it's a bunch of junk collected and displayed in yards and houses on one block of Heidelberg street. It's worth a drive thru and certainly cool if you like the destroyed depressed burned out...More
