For a long time, metropolitan Phoenix felt like a paint-by-numbers that had been sorely ignored around the middle. Today, that's not the case — the hottest real estate on the market is smack in the center of town. Blink, and that emerging neighborhood you had your eye on is suddenly out of reach. We've combed the not-so-mean-streets of our city to find eight neighborhoods you might not have heard of — and you definitely need to know more about.
While we're celebrating these gems, we haven't forgotten the implications of gentrification and urban development. So we'd like to invite you to be part of the discussion of how Phoenix is developing — what neighborhoods have it right, which are on the wrong path, and what we can do to preserve the past, respect current residents, and create a vibrant future for our city.
Join us at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 17, for New Times Live! at First Draft Book Bar for a panel discussion and happy hour prices all night.
