The Stockade is in the pink (updated)

IMG_7017 . .  view Noon Friday, May 4, from 16 Washington Ave.


Cherry blossoms arrived in earnest overnight on the Stockade’s Washington Avenue, and around the entire neighborhood. Some serious wind and rain might decimate them this afternoon, but here are some views taken Thursday morning, May 3, 2018, on Washington Avenue. More will be added throughout the day.



  • IMG_6932 update: 5 PM, May 3. See the Slideshow below, which has about 80 images taken early Thursday morning on Washington Avenue, and then around noon in a circuit up Front St. to Lawrence Circle; then south on N. Ferry to Union Street; and then up Washington Ave. and back to Front St. and Cucumber Alley. They are in the order taken, showing what grabbed my eye on each block.
