Attention to Detail

Last Week’s Answer

The bow window in last week’s clue is on 228 Beacon Street, built in 1863. This French Academic style building is here today because a developer’s 1969 plan– to tear down seven buildings from 222 to 234 Beacon Street and replace them with a 32-story, 96-apartment high-rise with a 100 car garage– was never realized. Do you have a favorite building or detail you would like featured? Send an email to with your suggestion.
