155. In Philly..........
The "City if Brotherly Love" during the 60'a & 70's, you could claim an abandoned house & homestead it. Sorry I don't have the details. Foreclosed on by the city?, abandoned by the slumlords being cheaper than making repairs ( most prevalant my guess....) There were specific benchmarks to be met to bring it up to code, and after a given time if those were met, you owned the place. We might want to recycle that idea in the near future.
But look at the difference in attitude & morals, now............abandoned foreclosed homes are being stripped of their valuable materials & destroy ed for future habitation.

Immediately the homeless problem exhisted after 1/20/81!
