From the Reader's tenth-floor office, the staff has a clear view of the Harry Weese River Cottages, located on Canal Street at the edge of Wolf Point's west bank. We've often wondered what's behind the architectural gem's many slanted windows. Earlier this fall, when one of the riverfront town house's units went on the market for the first time since it was completed in 1988, we jumped at the chance to tour the space designed by Weese, the lauded late architect whose many creations include the circular Seventeenth Church of Christ, Scientist and the Metropolitan Correctional Center.
