This is a neighborhood in transition. Be aware of your surroundings, be a careful tourist. Its not terrible but we hope you will understand that it's not Park Avenue around here.
!*!*!*!*! Also, note that there is an Iron Works underneath us. They arrive at 8:30 and leave at 5:00pm monday through friday only. It's definitely not loud all day, but it definitely is loud sometimes. If you are out of the house in the day it would not ever affect you.
Come and go as you like, and let us know if you have any particular requests! Smoking tobacco is only out on the patio, and if you are hoping to have visitors please check with us first.
Also- unfortunately, strong perfumes can cause an allergic attack for my partner, so please refrain from using them in the house!
