The Avenues In Salt Lake City
The Avenues is named after the perfectly grid-like, closely laid out roads called Avenues and Streets. First surveyed in the 1850s, the Avenues became Salt Lake City’s first neighborhood. Today, the Avenues neighborhood is generally considered younger, more progressive, and somewhat “artsy” when compared to other neighborhoods. Many young professionals choose to live there due to the culture and easy commute to downtown. The Avenues neighborhood is often referred to by locals as the “Avs”. It is also one of the most important strongholds of the Democratic political party in Utah. The Avenues lie just northeast of downtown Salt Lake City, and just east from Capitol Hill.Click here to view Avenues homes for sale.
