Here is an example of some of the newer houses you will see in NoDA, where Craftsman style houses are making a huge comeback:

I happen to be intimately acquainted with that particular home

That's funny - we almost bought that house 1.5 years ago...swung by a couple of weeks ago and saw that it was still on the market.

Well, it's not that it is STILL on the market - it's that it was bought and then went on the market again I think it is so pretty, don't you?

Im not familiar at all with area only what the girl told me at Smelly Cat said to go and I have to admit never ever been in NODA except back in early 90's so I was paranoid about the Here Say of the area and from what I remember back then. The area does look progressive. Is there any word what they might do that run down warehouse mill behind the water tower?

I did like the way the area is progressing

I've been through there twice in the past couple of weeks and noticed there are still at least a couple warehouse/mills vacant and boarded up. I wonder why these haven't been bought, divided, and filled with local vendors? Anybody know of plans with those buildings?

Last I heard that mill was going to become condo's. It is a fantastic location too because the light rail will run right by it when the line finally gets that far on its way to the University area.

It kinda cool I was dropping off my TV set not near this area and I thought that I was near the Plaza I would take photos but some how I ended up in NODA I never have gave the area a chance due to those prior memories of the area. I could have sworn that one of those mills (I think it gated condos now) use to be public housing or low income housing. Im going to learn the history of the area now. I would like to learn about the different type of mills that once lurk the area. I agree the light rail will be a major boost to the area similar what is happening to South End now.

I haven't spent a ton of time in NODA, but I've liked what I've done so far. I've seen a concert at The Neighborhood Theatre - great place to see a show - and one at The Evening Muse - also good. I spent one Friday night on one of those "Gallery Crawl" thingies - excellent way of getting to see a bunch of art galleries - and a lot of them serve snacks during the Crawl!

And I took a couple photos of the Smelly Cat:

Is one of those two bungalow-style houses the one that Turner South profiled as it was remodeled? The one where it was an all-female crew that did the work?
