Buildings crowd both sides of this narrow paved street, forming a kind of canyon of shade along which pedestrians move. In the foreground and in the background where the street intersects another, there is light. The fascades of the buildings, the various window treatments, balconies, cornices--all form a lively counterpoint to this otherwise quiet back street. (Monica Jensen 04/09/93)
