The court, the alley, the place. I wonder what it's like living on these smaller city streets, some with a narrower roadway, like Denton Place, almost under the Culver Viaduct, and others, like Warren Place Mews, that are wholly pedestrian. I went inside a house on Warren, sometime in the 90s, & tiny as it was, I was sick with envious thoughts. The houses at Woodrow & Roosevelt Courts were built thirty to forty years later than those on Warren, and you couldn't call them beautiful, like the Warren cottages, but they still hold an out-of-the-ordinary appeal, & I'd still like walking up one of the little pathways to get to home. The Courts run either side of 30th Street for half a block, just below & parallel to Fifth Avenue. Woodrow Court was built in 1910 & Roosevelt in 1920. The houses on the Fifth side have bigger backyards, directly on the avenue, with garages or open parking space. The chain-link around the greenery (or concrete where the greenery might be) on the Court side reminds me of a similar look at the big apartment building on Fourth (23rd/24th). Imagine the courts with a real garden running down the middle.
