"The 300-400 Block Club makes for a wonderful inner-city community."
My grandmother lived on this street for nearly fifty years. Two of my aunts lived on the next block down. Obviously, Bosart has quite a place in my heart. In the last decade or so, property values in the surrounding streets has steadily declined. However, after I moved into my grandmother's house on the 300-400 block of North Bosart, I began to understand why people called it an "oasis". My block has a wonderful anti-crime/neighborhood beautification committee that is head by some of the kindest people one will ever encounter. Every house is clean and beautiful, most with wonderful landscaping. When a home is for sale, all of the neighbors pitch in to make sure the appearance of its yard is neat, so that it will not look abandoned. There are often community events, such as block parties and yard strolls, that bring everyone together and make everybody feel important. The neighbors are quick to have birthday parties and get-togethers for one another, and I walk my dogs daily with a group of between one and five other women. This block (and the street as a whole) is conveniently located from downtown, without being too close. Overall, it's a wonderful place to live.
