A reader sends in the following pics and cautionary tale:
"I live near Leland and Malden and happened to be walking by the "Leland House" run by Cornerstone/Jesus People USA on the southwest corner at 4656 N. Malden. I noticed large chunks of concrete on the sidewalk on the Leland side of the building (see above). I happened to look up to see where it came from and noticed that years of shoddy patchwork on the cornice of the building was resulting in chunks crashing on the sidewalk (see below). Some of the chunks were close to 8 inches long and could seriously injure someone. I called 311 and requested a building inspector to come here immediately and hope your readers do as well. Just looking at this building's exterior, you can see years of patch jobs and deferred maintenance. I think the residents here deserve better. It upsets me to see buildings in Uptown falling into disrepair like this one. I hope you share this with your readers. Thanks."
