I like the back porch on this house in Hyde Park; while much of the neighborhood is from the 1800’s, some is more recent, as this building attests.
The good news is that rehabilitation is coming to Hyde Park, in the form of numerous renovated buildings.
Fresh plywood delineates the buildings marked for rehab, and they were wisely chosen from some of the best housing stock in the neighborhood.
Update: The houses above were renovated into affordable housing.
It will be interesting to see how it turns in the coming months.
