Description: 

The street on which Bayard crashes while riding the stallion leads away from the street with the livery stable on it. It is described as "quieter," quiet enough to allow children to be playing in it when Bayard and horse suddenly appear (130). The trees that line it, the cement sidewalks and the presence of black yardmen all suggest a wealthy or at least middle-class white neighborhood. The one car driving down the street belongs to Narcissa Benbow.
