Like many inner city neighborhoods, the West End of Hartford undergoes cycles of restoration and decline. I expected that the economic troubles of the last five years would produce some dramatic examples of fine properties in the West End that are on the ropes today.
Not so. The vast majority of the homes look great. So, because it is far more productive to be positive than negative, today I feature a lovely old West End home that is receiving the attentive facelift that it deserves to ward off decay.
