The quiet blocks of Fox Park, just north of Russell Blvd and south of I-44, feature a bevy of beautiful houses from as early as the 1870s to the early Twentieth Century.

Below, houses I might expect to see in Baltimore line the street.

Older Italianate and Second Empire houses also point to the neighborhood’s close proximity to Lafayette Square.

What did the interstate destroy? I am sure it destroyed a lot of wonderful houses, and permanently severed the South Side.
