Ruth's stepfather had purchased and renovated an old brownstone, which he was forced to leave after he received a letter from the city that the home was going to be torn down in order to build a low-income high rise. He moved out of the house, and the house was torn down, but twenty years later Ruth went past the address and nothing had been built there. The lot remained vacant.
