Long Description:
In Boston's Back Bay Section, there is a beautiful brownstone style building that has incredible details on it.

The building is similar to other buildings on this street. It is a multi-story building that is not very wide. Often there is a businesss in the basement and first floors, then either offices or residences above them. In this case, there is a jewelry business, Small Pleasures, that is in the building, which had lettering in the windows. There also was a temporary sign by the entrance for Yuri's Watches.

The entrance and windows are surrounded by a peaked frame. On either side is a column. Above them is detailwork that is of leaves and vines, with initials "HV" or "VH" in some places. There are more designs in a band above the entranceway and windows. Just under the second floor windows are bas-relief of more columns. Designs around each window continue up to the top floor, each floor different from the other.
