This is a very adorable little street. It has about two dozen renovated Victorians, which have been converted into office space mainly for non-profits.

I pass through this small park several times a week and it always lifts my spirit. It's a collection of preserved historic houses that are now used for offices for non-profit organizations. Architecture, landscaping and fountain are lovely. Quiet oasis.
