of one hundred years of walkers, cars, horses.
The jagged boundary of brick and grass is not easyto discern, but there are those that think that is the beauty
of antique cobblestone in this on the cusp section of town.This is where affluent people lived in abundance– back in the day.
There was no lack of arbors and gazebos,servants quarters, or even a kitchen set away from the house
to prevent the fires from spreading to the home place.That was then, this is now. The houses are being restored,
so many are restored to the beauty they once were.The area brings back the look and feel of another gentler
time. That’s what we tell ourselves when we thinkof what it must have been like. Kids and adults languish
on huge front porches again and we drive by to seethe progress of another old dame, this one all pink
with white trim, two stories, and a playroom for the
kids built in. The TV room for the adults in a separate building
and when I saw the Starbucks area on a tour I laughedbecause I lost my way between that and the Eagles banners.
The revitalization is a wonder. But the streets will remainfor they are still a big draw in this marvelous hodge-podge.
