Belgravia Court and Fourth Street

It is barely possible to catch a glimpse of Belgravia Court in an automobile.  Only if you know just where to look, you may be able to see a fleeting image.  Belgravia extends from Fourth to Sixth Streets, intersecting at the southern end of St. James Court.  Victorian homes face each other across a shady and heavily landscaped green, making this "street" one of the most beautiful and tranquil in the city.

Fourth Street boasts some of the finest Victorian homes in the city.  Unfortunately, it has not escaped the blight of urban renewal as completely as some of the neighboring avenues, especially in the area between Central Park and Spalding University (which only fairly recently razed some impressive mansions to make room for parking lots.)  Despite that, Fourth Street is well worth the visit.
