    Thanks for the pickup, Claude. I lived in the Heights–on Henry, then Hicks–for 18 years and moved only because of P.S. 9’s failings.
    But I return often, mostly to show visitors the Promenade and for Teresa’s, today’s equivalent to Piccadeli; food & especially coffee are much better now.

    Has the St. George Dorm had any effect on neighbors?
