Manor Park / Takoma (December 16, 2021)
It has been a month since we last walked in the Manor Park and Takoma neighborhoods. Since that time the leaves have all fallen and the holiday decorations have reemerged from storage.
Apparently, Mickey had too much egg nog at last night’s holiday party.
These decorations weren’t holiday themed but still amused us.
We passed by Calvin Coolidge High School where Lauren’s Uncle Buzzy was a student. Back then it was a new school having been established in 1940. Named after the thirtieth president of the United States, it currently has around 560 students.
The Manor Park neighborhood consists of many semi-detached homes. Something that we had not seen previously were the homes lining one street that were all joined at the hip, so to speak.
Clearly, the neighborhood is undergoing gentrification with more and more homes being renovated and painted in various shades of grey.
The neighborhood also has its very own White House.
Finally, looking up we noticed that X marks the spot.
