Throwback Photo: Rent is too damn high

This month is our anniversary month! We started blogging as Uptownflavor back in February 2006. We’ve come a long way since then. And so has Jimmy McMillan, also known as ‘the rent is too damn high‘ guy. As we dug through our archives to get some perspective about the changes that have taken place over the past five years, we dug up this throwback photo of Jimmy on 125th Street in front of what is now TD Bank. Notice there used to be a KFC across the street. The vacant building remains in limbo waiting for a wrecking ball to take the structure down and replace it with a mall.
