At 1019 N. Roxbury (in what was once the home of legendary songwriter GEORGE GERSHWIN), lived singer ROSEMARY CLOONEY (who starred in 1954's "White Christmas," and is George Clooney's aunt ). Her husband also lived here: actor JOSE FERRER, best known for 1950's "Cyrano De Bergerac."

Their kids used to sell lemonade to tourists. Rosemary reports that on Christmas of 1955, Bing Crosby and his four sons sang carols outside the homes along Roxbury.

The BEV thumbnail is the actual home as it was. The Google & Yahoo! Maps thumbnails are the new home that has been buiult in it's place.

Sadly this beautiful old home was demolished this year to make way for a newer house. I hate real estate developers!
