Sussex Squatters

February 22, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The article in Arizona Republic bon 12/10/14 brought my attention to this historic building. However, the term historic would be disputed because they are arguing the family living there has been squatting illegally for 120 years. I don't know law but I thought at some point it's Too Bad, So Sad.  The real reason it's an issue now ifs because the land is high value real estate and someone wants their share. 

The adobe house was built by a mexican immigrant in 1877 and looks like it belongs in Mexico now with garbage strewn about, collections of who knows what and loose cable wires skirting the property.  The collection of "junk" must span the 120 years and while I'm sure there are interesting "treasures", it's an eyesore.

 

It's bad business for all the new condo's, apartments and restaurants to have this eyesore sitting there just waiting for another prime restaurant or two to fill the land next to the train tracks. Although it looks like the fancy Culinary Dropout is picking up some of the neighbors bad habits and has signs laying around already.
