Grove Court

Fairly high up on my list of "places I could
probably stand to live" would be one of the six little
mid-19th-century townhouses in this über-charming
courtyard in the West Village.  The neighbors must
 need to get along (at least enough to agree on a
single color for all those shutters and
what to plant in the flower bed) . . .

but at least they don't have to
worry about the riffraff getting in.
(Ironically, when these were built
they were low-end housing.)

[Linking back to Ruby Tuesday
and Our World Tuesday.]


  1. This looks like even more of a “secret garden” than yesterday.

    Whew. Pre-Civil War. And the setting for this William Sydney Porter short story. That is ivy on the walls, isn’t it?

  2. Very interesting that they were once "low end" housing. Now that they have charm, personality, and character, they are very desirable for those at the other end of the income ladder. Very nicely captured.

  3. Gosh -so pretty!

  4. Lovely town houses. These places are often sold as condominiums with a monthly fee paid to maintain, paint, and garden. Yes, I could live here also, at least for a few years.

  5. I would never have thought they were once for low end housing, they look so upmarket now :-)

  6. Looks like a good setting for "Rear Window" except possibly air conditioned these days.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
