The Whiteaker neighborhood, located past northwest downtown, is a neighborhood that celebrates entrepreneurs and community involvement. My cousin lives in what we coined “The Whit,” primarily because of the unique and diverse individuals that make up the neighborhood. It is not uncommon to find houses, automobiles, and businesses decorated flamboyantly.
Due to work obligations, I was unable to meet up with the group and travel to “The Whit” together. Instead I ventured into the neighborhood alone around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10. The resulting images show just how unique the neighborhood is.
