Slums of Park City

As I walked around Park City I ran into a few boarded up houses very close to the heart of the action and thought what is up with this?  Why would there be these little houses boarded up in prime real estate territory?  I was talking to a local about this, someone who has lived in Park City all their lives when in the early days of Sundance the filmmakers used to hand out tickets on Main Street and beg people to come in and see their films.  He told me that he knew the guy who owned the houses and he’s renovating them.  He paid nothing for them and now they’re million dollar homes.
