I find the idiosyncrasies of the St. Louis street grid fascinating, and Hyde Park may have most. Take the “skinny block” in between Klein and 14th.
Perhaps it was originally a market, but it soon acquired a series of tenements and other businesses.
Most of the buildings on the skinny block are gone, but there are some other amazing buildings further up 14th.
This little survivor is a wood frame house, with Greek Revival lintels. So cool.
