Pennsylvania Avenue at Crittenden Street

Update: I revisited this block in April of 2023.

Just south of this block, which I covered a couple of years ago, is the quiet 2900 block of Pennsylvania.

Why is it so quiet? It intersects at Arsenal and Gravois, and you get about five seconds to go before the light turns red. But there are some beautiful old houses, including this beautiful four-family recently renovated by RISE and Lutheran Development Group.

But I love little guys like this one below, perfect for one person or a small family that wants to save on utilities and live frugally. People do still want to live like that, and I like how this block is so democratic in house sizes.

A little less concrete in the front yards, which can be fixed, and this block would be really homey!
