Twin sisters Crystal and Kristeele Goodman live on a block on Detroit’s westside that has more abandoned houses than people. Both say that they have lived in their family-owned home for more than eight years. But it has been five years since the block had a decent number of neighbors. Gun shots are common and they say several corner store in the neighborhood have been held up, leaving the owner of at least one of them dead.
(Note: The exact spelling of the twins’ names were not printed in the video report above)
Though the Goodmans say that the home in which they currently live has been in the family for more than fifty years, they want to sell it and leave as soon as possible. But they can’t because no one wants to move into the neighborhood.
So they are essentially forced to live in a place that is is surrounded by constant danger.
