Our hotel is at the edge of a leafy green residential area filled with arts and crafts era homes. A few small Victorians are scattered about. It is a delightful place to walk and seems like a choice neighborhood in which to live. I’m guessing these modest homes must be very expensive.
Or maybe not, as entire blocks of the smaller, more run-down of them are boarded up and awaiting an impending redevelopment project. A few protest signs dot the neighborhood and the local businesses have petitions posted seeking fair treatment for the property owners affected by the project. It is clearly a time of transition here.
I hope they don’t destroy too much – this looks like a neighborhood worth saving. As I walk I wonder what it would be like to live here.
I think it would be good.
