I mapped North Washington Street and contrasted its current state with its depiction in Araby. The houses and Christian Brothers School are still there, but the lanes where the boy describes playing have been turned into parking lots and a paved street. Two street lamps are present on the street, as they're described in the story, and one stands almost directly across from a row house. This could be the boy's house, as the narrator describes "the light from the lamp opposite our door."
