Houses Sliding Toward 35W

When I think of houses falling victim to landslides, I think of ridiculously built houses along steep slopes in Malibu, Calfornia and not houses in the middle of Minneapolis. David de Young’s perspective, for one, has certainly changed due to to the slouching of Stevens Ave S in front of his home due to 35W construction as he documents in the videos below (via ChuckT).

That doesn’t not look good compared to this before shot from when Google’s StreetView cameras passed by.
