Some great buildings displaying great architecture. Some structures quite junky as well. All in all a nice drive and a pleasant part of town. Not much time invested but we did enjoy the drive.

Once I wanted to do a photo essay on this street. Then I had a close look: Pretty awful. Auto repair, auto parts, air conditioning repair, bakery, liquor store, gas station, "convenience" store, miscellaneous retail places in really worn out buildings. Wash, rinse, repeat. Shrubbery...More
