Washington Park: Oasis in the city

Washington Park: Oasis in the cityIT’S an unnaturally chilly May evening in Washington Park, heart of the humble, high-end neighborhood that bears its name.

Rent vs. buy — the case for flexibility

Rent vs. buy — the case for flexibility“A HOUSE is made of walls and beams,” the writer and educator Dr. William A. Ward once said, “and a home is built with love and dreams.” Anybody who has ever undergone the arduous task of combining those two — that is, making a home out of a house through the act of buying one — knows that it’s much easier said than done.
