Why bother with "Constructing an earthbag home is considered by many to be the most inexpensive method of building a home..." (from your previous post) if housing is this cheap? Surely the most efficient use of resources is to use the houses that already exist?

My brother and I sold my late father's house in Perth Amboy,NJ in 2005 for $220,000. It resold in October, 2011 for $87,500.

An interesting post, why certain places go into decline is something I wonder about while on my wanders (be it on foot or online).
I found this blog while I was grabbing a quick coffee break http://www.dirjournal.com/info/abandoned-places-in-the-world/ perhaps not the most cheerful of things but shows how even larger settlements steadily fall to ruin.
