EUGENE, Ore. — Take a stroll through the Friendly Area Neighborhood and one thing becomes clear, there are parks everywhere. If you turn off of 19th onto Pearl you will find Civic Stadium falling apart before your eyes, but drive a little farther you will find workers getting Amazon Pool ready for the community as the weather improves. Whether it is a dog park, skate park or pool, you will find it in the Friendly Area Neighborhood. Keep driving and you will come across many businesses. Market of Choice and Sunrise Asian Food Market are only separated by a street. There is definitely a visual divide between wealth and poverty. About a block from the houses next to Sunrise Asian Food Market is a building where people appear to have everything they own stored on their balconies.
