PARK CITY/PARKRIDGE OVERVIEW
This area of town has a bit of everything you’d want in an urban neighborhood: five minutes from downtown, diverse constituents, sidewalks galore, easy highway access, you name it. One of its most charming features is the high concentration of straight-out-of-a-storybook Barber Houses. In fact, Parkridge is the home of the largest collection of Barber homes in the world. These gingerbread-house looking structures built by prominent architect George Barber have incredible history (and incredible colors!). Speaking of colors – if you ever get lost, the tunnel on 6th Avenue has four murals featuring directions to the four closest neighborhoods, including Parkridge!
