As an architecture buff, I enjoyed a walk around this West End square's perimeter to look at the exterior of homes built here between 1890 and 1908. This assortment of wood buildings that ring the square is a real treat in a city where high-rise...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
