Pricey neighborhood

It's probably a $4-million condo now.

Look Out Below!

I would be nervous walking under potted plants sitting on a rickety railing, especially in a city known for a little earth shaking every once-in-a-while.

Glider therapy.

I'd say the swing was vital therapy for tired moms, and an important thing to keep kids occupied, rather than a whimsical amenity.

I wonder what this place looks like now. 18 on what street? Lucky Street?

So different!

That's an intriguing entrance layout. I really love it! Plus, the glider swing stirred sweet memories of my Grandparents and Grand Aunts.

Loose and Rickety

Surprised to see a glider on a rickety old porch of a rickety old house where one would expect to see only spartan furnishings instead of whimsical amenities.
