Clifton Heights Streetscapes

Update: Learn more about Julius Pitzman, who designed Clifton Heights, in this article.

The gently curving streets of Clifton Heights offer a panorama of vistas as one walks down its streets.

While walking past some houses, you might see a break in the trees and glimpse Barnes Hospital off in the distance. Below, a couple of gingerbread houses have crept into the neighborhood, adding another dimension of architectural style.

The wide variety of housing stock, from different generations certainly adds to the character of the neighborhood, including a wide variety of sizes, as this street of bungalows attest.

This church, wedged in between two streets, is a great example of the walkable church, where the people on surrounding streets would attend.

I love how the red brick stands out from the clapboards of the nearby houses.

    I used to live in that neighborhood for a year. Just across the street from that church, did you notice the creepy white house with the dolls in the windows?
