Watson street, between 10th and 11th. Watson is more like an alley than a street, it’s hidden right behind Main, only a few blocks long. This condo has a pretend creek, it’s a little reminder of Brewery Creek, the waterway that used to run through this neighbourhood.

Weird to think of all the waterways that were forced underground as this city was built. Here’s a photo from 100 years ago of one that flooded at Heather and Broadway, where now there’s just concrete. Many more cool old photos of Mount Pleasant here.
