TOUGH TIMES AT OUR DOORSTEPS

A story pitch by Greg Williams and Eric Williams

As the economy worsened, and millions of Americans nervously watched their 401(k) plans, we wondered about the toll our financial crisis has had on those whose lives and livelihoods are closely tied to a 401 K.

401 K Street, that is.

Turning to Google Street View, we identified a diverse cross-section of locales — private homes and apartment blocks, a Hilton hotel, a downtown pharmacy, a massage-therapy day spa and a church — each of which shared the same familiar street address.

From Anchorage to Ardmore, from Sacramento to Washington, D.C., what has been the impact of the recession on our country’s 401 Ks? And what could we learn from the stories that might emerge?
