Washington Avenue: Bizarro Heights
For better or worse, Washington Avenue now provides all the elements that the Heights traditionally could not: trendy bars, restaurants, and large apartment complexes. Please see the table below.
Lots of trees
Bar after trendy bar for miles
Two barstools at Textile
Liquor store next to a school (the chutzpah!)
What’s a liquor store?
Street after street of three story townhomes
The explosive growth along Washington can be partly attributed to the support from the neighboring Heights area. The Heights has benefitted, but clearly there have been negatives associated with this brisk development along Washington.
