Scenes from the North side II: Little Italy

"Little Italy", originally uploaded by cinnamon girl 71.

The north side is populated with historic structures that date back to the 19th century. Many of them housed businesses that were started by German and Italian immigrants who settled here during this period.

The Police Center is located in an area that was the center of brewing in the city until Prohibition. One of the largest, the Kearney Brewery, was located down the block at the corner of Wolf and North Salina.

South of this location, buildings that formerly housed clothing and shoe manufacturers and small retailers in Little Italy are in the midst of a renaissance.
