Lots of faded grandeur on Esplanade Avenue. Nothing that some nice new vinyl siding won't fix. I know vinyl siding is probably economical and it's better than pure decrepitude, but in an established neighborhood it sticks out as inelegantly as an abandoned house. Here's another thing I think about: do people who live in McMansions know they're called McMansions? What do they think of that? Thinking about stuff is fun.
