I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

I rode my bike through the WorldExpo site back in 2005 when it was still a quaint old neighborhood. They had just started to knock a few of them down, but there were still people living there. I'm curious where they all ended up...

Most likely in very ugly new apartment buildings in the suburbs which have sprung up like a very bad rash around the outskirts of the city.
