Thanks for the info. I always wondered about that place. It really stands out as pleasing architectural landmark in an area surrounded by “the city ugly.” I am not sure if the house I live in is notable but I did learn one interesting fact about it. My landlord is only the second owner of this single family home on Arlington Avenue. According to him the first owner was Mary Lydon, whose son had it built for her in 1930. What’s interesting about that is that her son was Gene Tunney, the heavyweight champion of the world from 1926 to 1928.
