Update: I revisited the area in the late summer of 2021 around North Newstead Avenue.
Tucked up in the bend of I-70 that now leaves most of its streets truncated to the north, I found the most interesting, quiet part of the Northside.
The area still has a fair amount of wood frame houses, indicating their early construction. But the housing stock continues to be eclectic, from a broad span of time, showing that the neighborhood developed slowly over time.
There are some incredibly steep streets in this area; on top of one summit, I cam across this abandoned apartment complex.
But then finally, well-kept houses from the early Twentieth century come in to view.
