Much of the architecture consists of well built brick and stone homes on tree lined streets.  In Spring all of the ornamental trees bloom in an array of glorious color like in this photo.  IMG_1211The wide boulevards & streets are lined with mature sycamore trees, oaks and maples. On a hot Summer day it is always so nice to be in the shade of these fantastic trees. IMG_1209IMG_1210
