GONZÁLEZ: Hey, everybody. I'm Ana.
NUNES: I'm Alex. And you're listening to Mosaic.
GONZÁLEZ: Alright. So if you say the words “New England triple decker” to someone in California or Tennessee, they're probably going to think you're talking about a specialty sandwich.
NUNES: But for people in our neck of the woods, there is no confusion. A triple decker is this iconically New England building: One house, three stories for three families, and, traditionally, a porch on every level.
GONZÁLEZ: But triple deckers are much more than houses.
