Survey Description
Although suffering from deterioration due to poverty in the area, as well as intrusion from a handful of wartime tract and Redevelopment housing, the architectural integrity of this neighborhood has remained remarkably true to its predominantly turn-of-the-century roots. Most of the new intrusions are compatible in scale and tone with their predecessors. An important visual touch is found in stately old trees which complement the age of the old homes. As a whole, the architectural stability of this neighborhood speaks cogently to its historic stability as a minority community.
