Memphis' South Main photos

Recommended Posts

Some random photos of the South Main area of Memphis, about a mile or so south of the main CBD area. Took these back in June, and don't recall having posted them here before.

Great shots...love the neighborhood. They really need to plant some trees down there though! Due to the fact that it was once an industrial district, it looks quite barren. I'm sure that will all change in a few years though.

I agree. Excellent photos. Do you have a feel for how many are currently living in the area? I see some revitalization taking place in some of the pictures. Is there a good influx of people moving in?

@ Sleepy-Great pictures. Which street is cobblestoned. I'm thinking that was Wagner behind the Spaghetti Warehouse but I'm not sure.

@ Hankster-The people moving in are from all different walks of life. The entire South Main area is so swanky. One of the more popular buildings on the trolley line is very unique when it comes to its residents (NBA player, news anchorman, & popular local business owner just to name a few). There are street signs in front of it that read,"Entrepreneur's Parking Only." Things like that really set this neighborhood apart. All of the restaurants and art galleries are bustling with activity on Friday and Saturday nights.

That sounds like a very COOL neighborhood. I think the trolley line adds so much potential to the area. I was very surprised at how frequent the trolleys came by when I visited a short while ago. Very Nice!

Thanks for the list. I could tell there was a lot going on when I visited a few weeks ago. Memphis is definitely further along than Nashville right now when it comes to downtown living, and I'm pleased that both cities are seeing a large influx of new downtown residents.
