We asked you to show us how close the recession is to your doorstep. Here’s our latest entry. (Send in yours.)

Name: K Hall

Location: Across the street from my house in Los Angeles

Recovery/downturn: I took a second picture from the street to also show the office for lease in the building next to the Blockbuster.

Graffiti has started to appear on the empty buildings and windows are being boarded over with wood. As if a hurricane is approaching. I dread watching the neighborhood I love fall apart.
