Recap of Northside Porch Tour

We did not get to take the carriage ride, because the wait was too long. Jergens Park, at the SW corner of Hamiton and Bruce was full of kids playing to the sounds of jazz from a SCPA quintet, and the sidewalks were lined with candles. It was a beautiful cool evening with fires in a few yards for warmth.

Everyone waved from their porches, and everyone socialized as they passed on the sidewalks. An event like this demonstrates the importance of homeowners to the developent of civic pride. It was a great time in a great neighborhood.
