Interesting Post article on a former resident

The Post has a nice article about a woman who lived in the neighborhood in the 1940s who came back to see her old house. I've heard that the neighborhood used to be a Jewish one, and the lady is Jewish, so that makes sense.

This part was interesting: "It's the place to be," Paregol said. "When my uncle sold [the house in 1964], it wasn't a place you wanted to be." I wonder if that was part of the white flight of the area, or something else.

The article has a part about the current owner and the lady talking about what was new and what was original, which is kind of sweet.

Neat article - it makes me wonder about who used to live in my house and around the neighborhood.
