There’s always that one house in the neighborhood. It doesn’t quite fit. In a sea of rowhouses, with the architecture and the choice of paint rarely differentiating by much, this house stands out.

Whoever says you can’t get the suburban feel in the city hasn’t been to this area of Bridesburg. There’s a whole block of suburban-esque houses. This one happens to have the massive yard and even the white picket fence.
