Crazy House Prices #1

7 January, 2007 (00:03) | 20910, Forest Glen | 3,489 comments

My wife loves to keep an eye on house prices in the area, information for the future so she says. I think the people renovating this property got to the market a little late. The previous 2 years prices were going up but as with much of the US prices have leveled off in the […]

Kirsten’s Cafe is a local coffeehouse known for its baked goods. It has been a good few months since we last visited and so I was a little surprised when I walked past the other evening. They had taken over the shop next door and doubled in size and now had a more modern look. […]

I finally went for a walk around National Park Seminary after living in the area for 5 years. I have passed by many times but never stopped.

I was just walking around this afternoon and came across this piece of redevelopment on Fenton Ave. There were also signs for Fenton Village on the other side of the road. It looks like redevelopment is not that far into the future.
