Utah Street Between California and Ohio Avenues, North Side, Benton Park West, Fall 2020

Heading east of Utah we see two of my favorite Italianate houses, with their own porches on the side. I’ve looked at them before, as well as this stretch back in May of 2017.

There are more red brick two-family flats…

…but I was happy to see this little Italianate bungalow had been renovated and was no longer abandoned, like it was back in 2017. Note: It had already been painted red before its abandonment, so I’m fine with it being painted blue by its new owners.

There are more houses that need to be rehabbed and occupied that are waiting.

But there are some great corner storefronts as well, some occupied with businesses.

By the way, that infamous quarry that is eating houses is on this stretch on the south side of the street.
