"Entreat me not to leave thee"

Ruth's former house now stands alone, the last one on the entire block, a block which once sported over 20 structures.

From what I can tell, the Brown-Cassine family on Cleveland Avenue may be the last people living in the VA Footprint as of today.  Outer Banks continues to cling on - I was initially turned away from the road there this afternoon by a police officer, but later told that it was possible to walk in to the bar. 

Otherwise, except for the possibility of the small purple house on Cleveland and the gray house on S. Tonti where one would hear a dog barking, there's no one left of the hundreds of people who once called the neighborhood home.
