Hljhw.ya Should Be Wide end
Houses Stand Well Back.
A. narrow residential street mny b a
rrry uttrnctlre one If tlio houses stnud
well back from the street line, with
pleasant grounds about them, says
Sylvester Buxter In the September Cen
tury. In a growing tuwn, however, the
danger from such conditions comes
With the liability to convert tho street
to business purposes or to erect mora
compactly disposed dwellings. If busi
ness comes In, the transition Is com
monly marked by Jugged Hues. Com
mercial structures, often of a cheap
ud undesirable aspect, are built out
to the strout, whllo the dwellings staud
recessed back nt lrrcgulur Intervals.
And whea nt Inst the street Is fully oc
cupied for business purposes It Is alto
gether too narrow. The roadway and
sidewalks are crumped, and often a
widening has to take pluce at the pub
He expeuse. If built up closely to the
Hue with dwellings, tho street Is likely
to lack air and sunshine, aud the tend
ency is toward scjualld conditions.
An excellent remedy for these evils
la offered In tile Massachusetts law
that empowered municipalities to es
tablish building lines at any desired
distance bsck from the street line.
When such a line Is established, no
buildings can be erected on the Inter,
veulng space. The municipality ac
quires au easement In this strip of
Und, which can still be used by the
rwner for anything but building pur
poses, and on the establishment of
such a line owners may claim dam
ages, as In case of takings for a street
widening. It Is, however, commonly
more ot a beneOt than a damiigo to
have property thus restricted, for It
sssnres a more permanently desirable
character to the street, nnd In case a
street widening should ever bo called
for no obstucles will stand In the way.
By taking tho restricted strips there
will be omplo room for the wider road
way nnd sldewnlks.
Ideiils for attractive sheet planning
are to bo found In many parts of tlio
United Htntes. There Is nothing mure
clinriulng ns u rural street I ban that
of a New England village nt Its best
lofty nlsles of leafage, the tie; :i with
feet In a carpet of turf nt the sidewalk
border; the houses unlet and unob
trusive, standing well bac k and mark
ed with tho true home character,
whether they ure humble cottages or
ahodue of tho rich. The noblest de
velopment of such rural streets Is to
be found In tho old towtis of the Con
necticut vullcy aud In western Massa
chusetts. Thero the main hlghwuyi
have an extraordinarily generous
width, often giving room for quadruple
rows of old elms and broad spaces ot
turf, tho roadway requiring only a nnr
row space In the total width of the
