The Cove Palm Springs (0881a)

The Cove Palm Springs (0881a)
The Cove residential area (see description in adjacent picture). There appeared to be about 30 completed homes in the area, though it looked like only 4 or 5 were occupied. All of the homes beyond this barricade are vacant.

I see you took this in 2009. Do you think the state of this neighborhood was related to the housing bubble (it seems early for that, though I know California was harder hit than other places), or was it already like this?

Yes, but also to just plain poor decision-making. It is an area north of Palm Springs that is buffeted by strong winds and thus the housing that is up there tends to degrade quickly. I would bet (cynically) that t was built on the assumption of seducing naive buyers who wanted to get a 'piece of the action,' and we know what happened to most of those properties.
