This afternoon I meandered over to the Whiteaker for my neighborhood post. I’d read the Whit group’s blog posts, so I kinda had a feel for the neighborhood, plus read up about it on its Wikipedia page.
Blair Boulevard is where it’s at in the Whit. I started at the Red Barn Natural Grocery store.
The Red Barn has sorts of organic foods and a little deli.
Sorry for the really dark picture
But the Whit is more than the great food on Blair Boulevard – it’s known as a progressive and eclectic community. I walked around the block just to catch a glimpse at the kind of housing.
That’s when I stumbled upon this gem: the East Blair Housing Cooperative. The multiple, brightly colored buildings are home to more than 22 units with all sorts of different people.
I hear the Whit also has a hostel! The Whit makes Jefferson Westside feel so uptight and average.
