Click photo below to see full sized image.
26th Street features a few historic houses, but most are post-1950. Nearly all of the houses, churches, a school, and other buildings on the west side (and to the River) were wiped out by highway construction in the 1950s-1960s. There several interesting artistic installations, include Albert Paley's functional gates.
