The commercial building in the upper corner was built in the 1890’s as a drug store. I had an old medicine bottle from there that is now in the Valentine Museum collections. It was vacant for many years before being torn down in the 1990’s.

The loss of the commercial/mixed use building is a shame, though it otherwise looks better (I don’t know… you can tell the houses have been fixed up but they’ve also seem to have lost some of the millwork/gingerbread on the front porches?) Anyway, is there an empty lot on that corner now, or what?

The houses that flank both ends of this block are new construction…and it shows. They are cheap looking wanna bees. I wish builders in this area would stop trying to replicate 19th century architecture when their execution is such a miss.

Did the home on the left make their windows smaller? I hate that. It made much more sense before.

Both of those houses are very nice inside and out! And that is someone’s house you are describing as “cheap” How rude…

I previously owned the house on the right — it is a very nice house. I didn’t have to deal with any of the “old house issues” that often come with 100 year old homes. Would certainly buy it again — the views were excellent.

No surprised-face emojis here. Kay9 says a lot of rude and ignorant stuff on CHPN, apparently without putting much thought and/or care into how it may affect other people. He also likes to deny the existence of institutional racism and stir up unrelated, heated conversations for his entertainment. It’s part of his shtick, but he rarely bases his arguments in fact and frequently denies even the most straightforward examples provided to counter his rabblerousin’.
