Plywood covers the windows, sleeping bags and empty bottles litter the shuttered doorways and head-high weeds sprout through the asphalt of the empty fenced-off parking lot.For a solid decade, neighbors and local political leaders complained bitterly about the condition of the former Pakistani consulate.
