OurDHStreets Remembers Michael Jackson

Lalo Alcaraz
The world is feeling the loss of Michael Jackson today as news of his sudden death reaches throughout the world. And, although we are a little neighborhood in a big city, I know many Denver Harbor residence are feeling it too. If you say you don't like MJ, you don't know MJ's work. And if you don't know MJ's work, get with the program.
He was one of a kind- amazingly talented & a great spirit despite of so much negativity around him at times. I am personally thankful for having the opportunity to experience his music.

~Rest In Peace Michael~
OurDHStreets already miss you.

Excuse the Hiatus

I know it's been a while since this website was updated, and for those of you who have been asking, I wanted to give you a bit of insight.
This project started with an outline that showed the ever endless possibilities of opening up a space for the public to express, share, learn. etc. & since the first post came to be, we (writers and followers) have been paying special attention to what you, the public, like to/want to discuss/support/read about.
So, with that new knowledge, we felt we had to take a step back and re-analyze our audience, our themes, and the direction that we hope this blog goes into in the coming months.
Please excuse the hiatus & we will be back very soon to open new doors of discussion, exploration, and, what we foresee, as a stronger connection to what is going down on Our DH Streets.

The fire broke out just before 6am on Old Clinton Road at Shotwell- just behind McReynolds Middle School. There are reports that a palate outside the warehouse caught fire and flames quickly spread into the structure.

The warehouse is apparently in an industrial warehouse area and not causing any problems for any residents. There were reports that a couple of the walls have collapsed. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. And there are no reports of any injuries.


We hope to have more info on the cause of this fire and to find out what exactly is burning, so we can have a better idea about how it might affect Denver Harbor & 5th Ward residents.
