Found in the 400 block… of Northampton Street, that is.

Well, there aren’t any swimming pools or movie stars, but there ARE some real treasures. And they’re all legal.

When I tell people I work on the corner of 4th and Northampton Sts. in Easton, I can get some interesting responses. No, not THAT kind of work, but it is where my office is. They say things like “rough neighborhood, isn’t it?” and ask about criminal activity. Maybe it’s just me and my rose-colored glasses again (I really do wish they came in purple, too), but I see different things when I walk in the block between 4th and 5th. Today I’d like to share some of what I saw on Saturday morning. I think you may be a little surprised.
