Interview with Helen Kelly
QUESTION 9
SAM POLLARD:

OK.


OK, Mrs. Kelly, what did the expressways do to your community?

HELEN KELLY:

The expressway divided the community. When you could walk cross the street and talk to your neighbor, it's no longer there. You gotta go cross the bridge, and after you go cross that bridge you ain't going to find that same neighbor because that space, street, is gone - all those houses in that neighborhood is gone**, and the people scattered every which way but where they were in, before they put the expressway.
