143 Huron Blooms!

I’m not too sure what “look” this architect was trying achieve. If I had to take a guess I’d say Imperial Storm Trooper meets Jawa Sandcrawler with a dash of Mondrian thrown in for good measure.

As you can see 143 Huron fits in seamlessly with its neighbors: a three story house with chartreuse aluminum siding and a Neoclassical bath house dating from 1903.

I suppose that’s why I listened to the workers at 143 Huron hammer away until 8:30 last night. I could call 311, but that would only be, well…

P.S.: I love it when the workers from this site hang out in front of Bagel On The Run and throw bottles onto the street just (as Johnny Cash would say) to watch them die.

  4. I thought this was the affordable housing side of Magic Johnson’s splendor. I always heard his stuff covers the Green to Huron side except for the bath house.

Tell me what you're thinking...
