This is a single block which features a very different experience depending on which side of the street you opt to walk on. The west side is dominated by the previously-mentioned former police headquarters. It's now apartments. The opposite side is a mixture of much smaller buildings, but they all bring their own charm to the stretch.
Some of the smaller buildings have been renovated recently and clearly demand a high price on the market; one even has an all-glass gate out front. A few of the other buildings seem rather ordinary, though I'm sure they're nothing one would call affordable.
This is actually one of those rare short blocks that has enough history that there's an entire Wikipedia article devoted to it. Quite frankly it does a better job of describing it than I ever could.
