Fodor's Review

Many of Alexandria's sea captains once lived on this block, which gives visitors the truest sense of what the city looked like in the 1800s. The stone pavement is not original, but nicely replicates the stones laid down during the Revolution, taken from ships sailing to America and used to balance the vessels during the passage.
