Ferguson's old quarter a world away from protests

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 08/25/2014 - 16:38
By Edward McAllister FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - Images of rioting and demonstrations after the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, have provoked outrage across the world. Yet just a 10-minute drive from where Michael Brown was killed on Aug. 9, signs of the unrest that has beset the poorer neighborhoods of this St. Louis suburb are strikingly absent. The sometimes violent protests have had little visible impact on the quiet tree-lined streets of Ferguson's historic district, where some of the city's grandest houses are located and many of its white residents live. We are far away enough from the isolated parts of Ferguson and are virtually unaffected," said Ruth Brown, a 72-year-old white woman, sitting on a white couch in the spacious living room of her 130-year-old home.
