14 Garfield Street, by David W. Dunlap (2012).

With its stout corner tower topped by a wind vane in the form of a sailboat, 14 Garfield is certainly the architectural landmark of this one-block street, named in honor of President James Garfield. It’s a landmark of stability and continuity, too, as the only property on the block that hasn’t changed hands in recent years. It was purchased in 1973 by Robert Paul Silva, a fisherman, carpenter, and property manager; and his wife, Carol Ann (Salvador) Silva, a teacher of Catechism classes and a Eucharistic minister at St. Peter the Apostle.
