Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 144: Lewis Apartments on N Street

Another lovely older residential building near the Capitol is Lewis Apartments, located on the corner of 11th & N Streets:

I'm especially fond of the graceful archways at the top of the stairs that lead to an impressive front entry door and lovely lobby area:

The interiors of the apartments maintain their historical character, with lots of built-in storage and interesting detailing:

I couldn't find any information online about the history of this site or building, unfortunately, so I don't know how long it's been in existence or if it used to serve another purpose.  Regardless, I very much enjoy passing by it during my morning bike commute to work.
