First of all, dear readers, I must apologize for my delay in putting up a new post here. I’ve been working on new ideas for interesting and informative posts in the future on this blog…so please be patient with me. Thank you!
Now, then: You’ve no doubt been enjoying the blog so far, but we’ve neglected to answer the most important basic question of all: Where exactly is the Newton Booth Neighborhood, anyway? And Poverty Ridge? And Alhambra Triangle? And even more importantly, you might be asking yourself, do I live there?
In hopes of helping us all visualize where we are, I’m going to upload a map of the neighborhoods that the Newton Booth Neighborhoods Association covers. Below, I’ll describe the boundaries briefly.
The boundaries of the three neighborhoods are:
Poverty Ridge: 19th Street (west), R Street (north), 24th Street (east), W Street (south).
Newton Booth: 24th Street (west), R Street (north), 29th Street (east), W Street (south).
Alhambra Triangle: I-80 (west), R Street/Light rail tracks (north), 37th Street (east), I-50 (south). Basically it’s the triangle south of R Street/the light rail tracks, between I-80 and I-50.
Look carefully at the map. Do you live in one of these three areas? If so, congratulations…you’re in our neighborhood!
I’ll have more next time. Please keep checking in at this blog…and thanks for stopping by!
