The brownstone condos on West 119th Street by FDB were built about a decade ago and one of the many nice details of this transformative construction are the row of cherry trees that line the block.   Some other arbors tend to really grow too large for narrow side streets and block off way too much light during the warmer seasons but cherry trees tend to be not as aggressive in stature. This blooming species is also quite spectacular during early springtime and heralds the better weather to arrive in the coming weeks.  On a side note, Chef Marcus Samuelsson used to live on this block before moving to a brownstone in the Mount Morris Park Historic District but those who like modern condos with a bit of tradition would probably like this particular development.
