Stop that banging

  The In Shaw webmistress is home sick with a nasty headache and the repair work going on in the alley sure ain’t helping. I shouldn’t call it repair. Maybe descruction. Apparently the top of the on again off again rehab house shouldn’t be there. Well it’s ugy too. 

There is a house on the 1500 block of 3rd St that has a ugly 3rd floor that juts up too, while the rest of the block has 2 stories. Ugly. I know why they do it. To add more square footage. But really it just adds to the ugly.

However there is a house on the 1600 block of 5th that has a lovely 3rd floor but it sits off from the rear, so if you are on 5th, on the street in front of the house you don’t see the 3rd floor. If you’re around that section of Shaw I recommend you take a look. Best spot is on the corner of R & 5th facing east.
