One House, Two House...Red House, Blue House


(Podil Pt. 4)
The color of this building stopped me in my tracks! I couldn't keep my eyes off it.

Anyways, the Podil district was home to one of the largest Jewish quarters in Ukraine. The Soviet leaders were not the first to segregate the Jews but when they did they chose the lowest point in the city. It was thought that now they could look down upon them not only socially but physically as well.

So are these one-family dwellings now?? I am assuming they are now upscale, high rent bldgs. Is that true?

I imagine they will be for multiple families when they're ready but I'm not exactly sure. Right now the entire neighborhood seems completely empty.
