Mallinckrodt Street, Hyde Park

There are amazing rehabs happening in Hyde Park, such as this one with what looks to be a stable behind it.

These alley houses, one ravaged by fire, are increasingly rare, but more common than other neighborhoods in Hyde Park.

There’s this amazing half-flounder that’s been jazzed up over the years.

 

And this spectacular, incredibly rare wood frame Second Empire house. I have found at least one other.

  1. That frame Second Empire house looks like it was transplanted from Cincinnati to St. Louis, because while you do not see many like it in St. Louis, there are hundreds of nearly identical ones throughout Cincinnati. Other than the incongruous front landing, it is a remarkably well-preserved one at that.

    • Interesting! Many immigrants passed through Cincinnati first before arriving in St. Louis.
