That said, minor quibble, but his goal was to walk or bike every street. Still a great feat, just not all done on feet.

Definitely agree on Sheridan and Eliot. Yale Terrace is an interesting one. It connects forest hills cemetery to the arbor way and has some good views. Starr Lane has a European town center feel. Park Lane has cool views, lovely houses and a public stairway down to the street below it. JP is a great place to explore on foot.

Forgive me if this was mentioned in the article, but Olmsted himself laid out Forest Hills Street as he planned Franklin Park. I lived in the Forestvale Apartments for almost nine years.

I think I walked that way when I saw a performance at the Footlight years ago. A chilly fall evening, but architecturewise, I felt like it was August on Union Ave. in Saratoga.
