While the peninsula is thriving with record numbers of tourists, new high end retail and restaurant neighbors, robust housing prices and hotels and boutiques popping up annually, it is easy to see that sheltered in the thriving Historic Charleston district is a city that is still suffering from the pains of poverty and infrastructural decline.
There are spots of Charleston that resemble poverty stricken Argentina or Camden, NJ more than the majestic Biltmore Estate.
One of the missions of Charleston is one community.? That is a promise made by our leadership and a commitment we stand behind.? Sometimes words and actions don’t always find their way to a cohesive partnership.
We wanted to share some images of Charleston that you may not see in your everyday journey’s or perhaps you just turn a dumb eye.? It is important to bring attention to the fact that we have serious infrastructure concerns, flooding and a growing separation point between the wealthy and the poor.
