Marine Villa Along Broadway

Marine Villa is one of those neighborhoods that is forgotten about, often times confused with just being the southern portion of Benton Park, and doesn't have a lot of businesses that are well known outside of the neighborhood.But it still has some stunning architecture, particularly along Broadway, which I might add is way too wide for the traffic it handles nowadays.There is an interesting mix of housing stock, some from the later 19th Century, and some that looks earlier and later.The large amount of Second Empire houses are what I love so much about this area.

    Boy - don't you just wonder at what is contained in some of those old attics? Items from life decades ago - some junk, some "neat stuff!"
    Well - I do...
