Terrific posting, Nicki! And great photos and commentary from Tom and Dan. When we moved to the block 17 years ago, rehabbing was just really getting underway and there were very few children. Now the houses are lovely and the children are EVERYWHERE! And those are both great things for a great block!


In 1968 the major banks were 'redlining', not offering mortgages in the area. We saw the beauty and the reward in improving city neighborhoods, as have many other long-term residents over the decades. My young sons were so happy with cul-de-sac streets, library branch, ice-rink, Langenberg's basketball compound and employment at Duff's as teens. There has always been a real neighborhood feel!
