The couple of apartment buildings that pop up here and there along Grand Boulevard always make me wonder: what would have happened if the city had continued to grow and become more dense? Would more buildings have joined the couple that do exist?
The Hutcheson Arms, built around 1928, is a building with fascinating mixtures of style. Art Deco elements, while more Beaux-Arts decorative schemes, seem to meld together.
Grand, once I’m sure bustling with pedestrians getting on and off the streetcars, is now little more than a traffic sewer. Only once it narrows further south does life return.
