I just got back from a mega walk around the neighborhood and couldn't help but notice that all black houses have overgrown lawns. I mean - every single one of them (and there's ALOT of them)!
I've heard that all of the houses are painted black because of the owner is mad at the city for not letting him paint a house a certain color (I can't quite remember the details). I don't know if that's true or just Oly lore. But is there also a thing about not mowing the lawn, too?
