Crossing Itaska Street and moving north towards Mount Pleasant Street (this part of Dutchtown is technically named after this street), we come across this beautiful Greek Revival house below, with a small neighbor set back from the street. I think it’s important for everyone to realize how beautiful these little guys are, even though they’re not recognized very often. They’re efficient little houses, and have a certain elegance as reflected in their Greek roots in their proportions. Their dormer windows are inspired by Greek temple fronts.
I didn’t photograph the house on the left below well, but it has a little gabled roof, and is probably very, very old. It has an extension out the back.
Then there is a row of 1920s two-family apartment buildings, showing there was still a lot of vacant land here even into the Twentieth Century.
A massive corner store building sits on the southwest corner with Mount Pleasant Street, waiting for someone to move their business in downstairs and their family upstairs.
