I've always had a crush on it, always wanted it be something, always wanted an excuse to visit.
"The plan of streets in Reynoldstown is a series of small grids that connect awkwardly to one another...forming T-shaped intersections..." - National Register of Historic Places Registration Form February, 2003
The crazy curvy diagonal of Flat Shoals Avenue gives rise to some "odd shaped lots" that make Reynoldstown perpetually interesting to me.
My eye always stops at this little flatiron. It shows on all four sides and even its backside is cute. It's pretty much at the center of "downtown" Reynoldstown.
It's been boarded up as long as I remember then a hair salon.
Let's have a look around.
The front looks like a face to me. You?
The streetcar to East Lake, Decatur, and the Soldiers Home ran on the right side.
Update: Thanks to Lisa: Flatiron in Red via Streetview:
Perhaps you can tell me a little more about this place.
