About The City
Several years ago one of the local
papers, either the Nation or the Arus
called attention to the block west of
the Washington school, us being
worth) Imitation in one respect. The
block contained no piirtltlon fenced
nor was there a fence along Its entire
front. The buildings were all set back
an qual distance from the par emeu t,
leaving ample room for an extended
lawn between tbe sidewalk and the
houses; and there were no shrubs or
gardens of any nature to interrupt the
pleasant serenity of the sward. Young
maples lined the walk on each side,
These have since grown into stately
trees and are kept trimmed to A suffl
cent height not to luterfere with ped
estrlauson the sidewalk and permit
an obstructed view-of tbe lawns from
thestrect and attractive glimpses of
the buildings. Tbe slope is now
crowned with the elegant mansion of
Fred Turnure, who likewise follows the
civic idea In the arrangement of his
front yard, Judge Edsou's place is
alto in line, and he has, likewise, iw
proved his residence, while Frank
Cowden has converted his former mod
est house Into one of the line build
Ings of the city. Hut what wepartlcu
larly desired to note is the fact that
this block was the ttret In the city to
exhibit nn unfenced harmony of fellow
citizens, who could look beroud their
individual lots aud tuke into consider
atiou the appearance of the entire
block. While we could wish that other
than ninplejtreos bud beuu usod, not
because !tnaple trees are not the beaj
trees fur tbe purpose, but because we
would like to see each block , adorned
with a different variety of tiees, if
possible, still, looked at as one block,
this has long been one of the ideal
blocks in the city for the reasons we
have Indicated above. Its 'example
has doue much to educate the people
of the city. By far the greater pro
position of the residence blocks wall
of Webster street are now unenclosed,
and the entire Plutt addition. is being
developed to secure u general- nulty, of
The Sherwood corner on Third Aven
ue and Seward is a tine UlimtratldiV ot
what can be doue to make the grounds
more attractive by a proper arratig
ment of the trees. This corner was
once one of the most dismal' parts of
tbe city. The trees bad been Buffered
to grow lu such exuberance cjf foltlage
that the sun could not visit 'the lawn
with its trladness and life. The trees
have been trimmed, the houses set far
ther back, and there is now no prettier
spot in'tbe city. Of course, the new
building, perhaps the handsomest in
the town, adds something to tbe gen
eral result. But, even were there no
ballding there, the spot would still be
a delight to the eye of the passers-by.
Take for instance tbe corner of Fifth
Avenue and Seward street. Miss Igou
has erected a new building there, but
it is not a pretentious struoture, nslth
er is tbe Lindsay residence west; but
we know of few, if any, places in the
city more attractive to the seas of
peaceful beauty than the block which
faces south on Fifth Avenue between
Seward and Walnut; 8treeU.
It is aot the purpose of the Chief to
oriticlse the buildings of tbe olty.
Baoh lot owner must be governed, by
own taste and bis own purse in be
matter ot buildings, Few of them can
be substantially changed. . They are
what they are, and we must make he
best of them. But it is an easy matter
to take care of the trees, to take a
block view instead of a lot view. 1 of
tbe matter in arranging the front yard,
to look for block unity and harmony
instead of lot pocullartics, to consider
one's neighbor mid the general public
instead of our individual selves, and
there is no reiibon why all he people
