"Homey, working class area"

Baychester looks like the neighborhood your grandmother lives in: lined with old trees and old fashioned electrical poles (made from wood rather than cement), and two story houses with window dressings. This is a working class neighborhood (which may or may not appeal to your grandmother), and the residents here are mostly African American. The streets are appealing, though – they are tidy and well-kept, and the buildings are well maintained (an aspect that not every neighborhood in the city can claim). Many of the homes are brick with white shutters, like something out of a movie that take place in New England.
