Waterman Boulevard Between Lake Avenue and Kingshighway Boulevard

I realized I’ve never really ever taken any photographs over this way on Waterman Boulevard, and on a nice sunny day, the buildings really looked their best.

It’s a mix of mansions, three-families flats–which are super common in Chicago but not so much in St. Louis–and other apartment buildings that look like six-families.

It’s interesting to see a neighborhood built in this way, as it would not be very common today to have incomes mixed like they were one hundred years ago.

While there are red brick façades still, there are more colors, particularly tan and buff brick as is common in the western side of the city.

  1. Crazy how this same housing stock appears just north of Delmar. What a difference redlining makes.
