At Tenth, the street hits a grand note:
Turn down Tenth & head left at 51st (opposite La Strada pizzeria) and you couldn't find a more different streetscape. At the corner, a box of an apartment building houses a Pain Management Center, and the block reveals pairs of bricky (30s?) semis, some with tacked-on balconies as heavily railinged as jail cells. Hellzapoppin' on 51st, as a building boom is pushing the housing up, up, up.
