Those of us that live in the neighborhood knew this day would come — the day when 87 Hawkes Avenue, currently an elegant, one-family home surrounded by Deerfield Condominiums and gracious century-old trees, would be irreparably changed.

As someone who has an interest in its history (check out my blog post here about previous owner and UFO communicator Andrija Puharich) I thought it would be interesting to observe this parcel evolve from a quiet, residential one into a site with two apartment buildings containing as many as 53 rental units.
