Boston’s South End neighborhood: brick sidewalks, bakeries, tree-lined streets, community gardens, and Victorian row houses.  From what I remember of a course I took on Boston architecture, the South End was a methodically-planned building project of the latter half of the 19th century for middle-class families.  The row houses are far from monotonous, even though the entire neighborhood maintains a uniform aesthetic. Also, this is the location of DeLux, the best little bar/café ever (and maybe the subject of another print if I get around to it)!
