Some residents living on Spafford Road on Cleveland’s eastside believe their street could be the city’s most hazardous.
According to county records and the Cuyahoga Land Bank, the one-mile stretch of Spafford Road is home to more than 30 properties that have gone through, or are in the process of going through, financial distress.
Some of the homes have been left stripped, abandoned or condemned for nearly two years.
Gwen Penamon, who lives across the street from 5 of the potentially hazardous and vacant homes, said she’s extremely concerned about the safety of the neighborhood.
“I could be going to the store, coming out, and get attacked,” Penamon said. “People coming and going, you don’t know who is in the house, which is really sad, and it’s really dangerous.”
