I was trying to find an online link to the Home Owners' Loan Corporation maps of NYC.  The old links I had didn't work anymore; I only had an image of this one.

The Word was on my mind all morning, and even, to my surprise, on the street. I doubt the guys at Redline knew the association (or maybe?), but there was irony to spare; here was a rowhouse waiting to go townhouse, or even townhome. It was in the red (pink) zone in 1938, but the colors had all changed; now it was solid blue, or even poised for green.
