Friendly Neighborhood

By Camille Lieurance

The beautiful Friendly Neighborhood, which spans from Amazon Creek on the east side, 18th Street on the north side, and Chambers Street on the west side. The southern boundary for the neighborhood is West 29th Avenue to Lorane Highway, then north on Washington to West 28th Avenue. The neighborhood then continues from West 28th to Chambers Street. The neighborhood has a mix of small businesses and family homes. It seems for the most part a family oriented neighborhood. One of the most noticeable observations of the neighborhood is an interesting dichotomy between wealth and poverty. I am looking forward to learning more about the neighborhood. Here are a few photos I took while exploring the neighborhood.  For more information on the Friendly Area Neighborhood, you can visit here.
