Baker and South Broadway together make up a historic neighborhood that encompasses thirty blocks of contradiction. Gorgeous Victorian era homes line residential streets. But, residents walk to a crazy-cool mix of dive bars, music venues, galleries, restaurants, and coffee shops. And, the vintage/thrift shopping along South Broadway is the city’s best.
