Black Dog Village
Micah Wallenberg lives in Black Dog Village, a fictional homeless village constructed in an architectural salvage yard. The inspiration for the salvage yard is Black Dog Architectural Antiques and Salvage in Roanoke, Virginia. (No, there aren’t any homeless people living there.) The inspiration for the homeless village was the real-life Umoja Village in the Liberty City area of Miami, Florida.
Six months after its founding, Umoja Village burned down and the City of Miami removed its residents.
