Similar to Ladd's Addition, the Irvington Neighborhood is an historic district, but only became one recently in fall 2010. The Irvington Home Tour site has a great list of the historic properties of the area. We passed by a few, the Bowman house, the Bowman Apartments, and another set of Bowman Apartments, not pictured here. The house definitely stood out because it took up about four average size lots at the end of a block. Although, the first thing I noticed when we walked up the street next to it was the unbelievable huge hedge. It also seems to be on the market, you know, if you're looking for a place with a ballroom.
And we also saw many many cats on this walk, including a tabby who wanted some attention and a calico who I think was done with the outdoors for the day:
To end the afternoon, we used a Groupon at the new-ish McMenamins on Broadway. We had a veganized Garden Labyrinth Pizza (it usually has cheese on it) & Beer. I forgot how much I liked the Ruby Ale.
Update: I forgot to mention the very cool treehouse, right on the corner, that we saw in Irvington. Nice ladder from the driveway, a neat catwalk, nice size and location! I'm ready to play.
