Excrescences, literally and figuratively

These replace the house known as "Roy's Taxi." The name was appropriate because it was Roy's green and because decades of non-productive graduate students lived there, driving Roy's cabs to keep body and soul together and often parking a cab right there. The house that made way for these uglitudes was architecturally distinguished and extremely pleasant inside, but the City didn't deem it important enough to be saved. The structure nearing completion is larger by far than the mansions considered large enough by Stacy and his family when Fairview Park and Travis Heights were developed.
