Welcome to Tombstone, Eagle Rock

There is a new welcome to Eagle Rock sign on Colorado blvd. that resembles a concrete tombstone complete with faux oxidized paint job. Across the street from "the tombstone" is Eagle Rock's newest ghost town, a condo project that went belly up and bankrupt during construction phase. 
It is now completely abandoned and a huge eyesore for local residents. The fence around the structure was removed today, probably for unpaid rent, and will make it much easier for taggers to get to. Also will make a wonderful homeless encampment too. 
Hope "the Rock" doesn't make itself an O.K. Corral anytime soon.
