Time and Again

The realtor who had the listing posted the news yesterday on Facebook that 201 Allen Street had sold for "well above" the asking price. (You can consult the realtor's website to find out what the asking price was.)

This information sent me back to the cache of snapshots I uncovered back in March, taken almost two decades ago in 1996 or 1997. Back then, 201 Allen and its companion 201½ Allen had the reputation of being the sites of all manner of illicit activity.

The pink and green color scheme, which was fairly new at the time the picture was taken, was an improvement over the houses' previous appearance. The fate of these houses provides yet more evidence of the amazing future old houses can have.
