Midtown Memphis photos--old apartment buildings

Recommended Posts

Midtown Memphis is the late 19th-early 20th century part of the city, approximately 16 square miles. It runs from the downtown area east for about 4 miles, and is bounded more or less by the Parkway System, a 1920's innercity loop with a landscaped median and old, rich homes.

And no, Midtown wasn't named after Atlanta's--there are businesses in Memphis called Midtown since the 30's.

Anyway, it's home to some of the wealthiest people in Memphis, poor people, the middle-class, and has a little Saigon as well.

It also has some great architecture imho and many old apartment buildings, as pictured here.
