Good pictures 210! My boys won't sit in the car while I go drive and look at houses! Boy, I went down to LAFB on turkey day to get some service men and could believe all the billboards for new houses! Husband grew up on the westside at 410/Marbach and keeps asking why people want to move there! Sort of funny

That old apartment building (4th pic) is called "The Madison." They were converted to condos not long ago. I checked them out, and what a rip-off! I recently saw that all units have been sold, and I was shocked (but not really, considering the strong market here). The units ranged from 300-500ish square feet. The 300 sf unit were going for 95K! Might as well move to the hippest part of Los Angeles if you're willing to pay that ridiculous a sum for half a college dorm room. Some greedy developer is having a big laugh on these poor souls who bought into this ****...and yes, 95K is pretty cheap for King William these days, but for 300 square feet? C'mon. Who could live in such a dinky room?

The southern end of the Riverwalk in this area is terrific.
And Madison is a cute street.

NICE pictures! Does anyone remember St.Benedicts Nursing home that was on the corner of Alamo and E.Johnson streets? Unfortunately the nursing home closed some time ago but I understand there's some construction going on there now.

I used to work as a nurse there in early the 80's and it was so beautiful a building and the back parking lot was on Madison street. At break times we would walk out the Madison side and stroll down the block taking in the lovely sites. And during fiesta weeks.....even more charming with the homes decorated!

There's major work going on now. It was supposed to be done by now but they've pushed it back a few months. I think more realistically it'll be 6-9 months before it's ready. Looking good though. Great location!

In 210's pics, my favourite house is the second to the last. It's very simple, almost hidden, but I love the layout and setting. And you're right about the Madison - I think they aimed at corporate buyers rather than individuals, or people buying to rent it out.

This is a great part of town. I've been there a few times in the past 10 years but I don't really know the area. Do y'all think King William is better today than it was 5-10 years ago? And...Will it be better in 5-10 year than it is today? Or has it stayed the same and will remain that way? It seems all the condos would effect the area.

Yes, I remember when they built that nursing home. It didn't have a very long life. Kinda eerie seeing it now. They have a white modular thing on it's south side with antennas. My boys said it's probably security device. Yes, there are signs of work going on there.

I've always been curious about these apartments. Seems they were remodeling them about 20 or more years ago. I remember a lot of work going on there way back. Were they always Apartments?

Nice photos 210!! I always liked that first house. Funny, there used to be an appliance parts house just across from the park. To the east, maybe north east. The old bldg. is still there last time I looked. The house just south of it has a fire pole from upper and lower enclosed back porchs. Btw, there are some houses in Monte Vista with that built over driveway as in photo #1.

Yeah, big security thing, there's a big sign on it.
