Update: I retract my previous statements disparaging Dennis, the security guard who was employed by the residents of Westmoreland and Portland Places in 2008.
Update: Sheesh, I was antagonistic ten years ago! I also retract these statements as well.
I like these pictures that I took through the gates of the private streets, very intrusive in a way; I imagine if the residents could they would block the views entirely. I guess I need to get my parents to drive me around inside with their Benz.
What is most interesting is the varied styles of architecture that occur on these streets, from Tudor Revival (not my favorite) to Renaissance Revival, Gothic Revival and even Beaux-Arts Gilded Age Neo-Classicism.
Here are a few pictures of Hortense Place, which sits to the east of Kingshighway.
