JUST WEST OF IRVINGTON, ACROSS EMERSON AVENUE, IS BOSART-BROWN.
Bosart-Brown is a compact neighborhood known for its neatly trimmed lawns, 1920s Craftsman-style architecture, and generous porches. Many homes here come with fireplaces and room to grow—a garden or a family. And better still, most of the houses here—many with original features still intact—are affordable. The Bosart-Brown Community Organization ensures continued reinvestment and neighborhood beautification, made easier by the influx of artists and entrepreneurs, designers and small business owners.
LITTLE FLOWER IS JUST NORTH OF BOSART-BROWN, BORDERED BY 10TH AND 16TH STREETS.
Here, the businesses are eclectic. There’s Emerson Theater, a colorful, rugged 10th Street staple. And The NY Slice next door, known for its authentic New York-style pizza. St. Therese Little Flower Catholic Church anchors the neighborhood, which is made up of charming 1920s Craftsman-style bungalows. Quiet and well maintained, the neighborhood is popular with young families and first-time homebuyers, who tend to learn a lot from 30-year residents. The wide porches make for excellent summer parties, and the neighborhood association is very active in organizing community-wide events like ice cream socials and yard sales.
