Pedestrian Walkways of Princeton Heights

December 3, 2017

Last week I posted about a pair of Pedestrian walkways in the Northampton neighborhood, and am following up today with some photos of a similar duo in Princeton Heights.

Like those in Northampton, the Princeton Heights cut-thrus are in quiet residential areas.  Walking down them shows you homes, backyards, alleys and garages: a cross-section of the neighborhood.

The photos above show the Quincy Walk.  A couple of blocks east is a shorter walkway, the Bonita Walk.

Finally, here is a map of the two walkways pictured and described above:
