Many homes have been torn down and replaced with much bigger dwellings that accommodate modern living in an eclectic mansion style, and on just about every block in the area there is the sound of saws and hammers as Observatory Park receives a huge facelift from homeowners looking to upgrade and expand. Real estate professionals agree that Observatory Park has historically done very well in terms of value, and has become the perfect blend of prestige and quaintness.
Another highlight of this terrific neighborhood is the Chamberlin Observatory, which is located off Evans Avenue in Observatory Park. The space opened 1894 and remains a great place for a family outing or a date night.
