Dave's East Tour Continues

Recommended Posts

Okay, East Nashville tour. I took a drive New Years Day morning and concentrated on the Edgefield/Lockeland Springs area. These are the areas that are getting most of the attention lately, and the pictures should show you why. East Nashville's reputation as a haven for crime and low income housing is, on some levels, well deserved. But, the continuing gentrification of these neighborhoods could give any diehard West Sider a reason to think again. Someday, I'll get out and shoot some pix of the not-so-pleasant, but very real parts of East Nashville that's not so well-known. I think I'll take the truck this time. Then, I'll hit Inglewood and surrounding areas. There's so much more to our central city than downtwon. Time to travel around the inner city and see what's there. Here's a start. Hope you don't find these threads too exhausting. I didn't pay too much attention to what Photobucket was doing to my order, so just look at these as a random drive around a two to three square mile area just a mile or two from Nashville's city center. Hope you enjoy. If you don't, pity, I'm gonna load them all. :)

I believe this is Fatherland with Tulip Street Methodist in background

Tudor on Greenwood Ave, across from Bailey School. My grandparents lived two doors down when I was a kid. Mom lived there until she married.

I've always like this one.

Stratton Ave. The mayor lives on this street, his house will come up later.

This house on Stratton has always fascinated me. Looks solid.

Mayor Bill Purcell's house is the blue one with the cool porches.

Presbyterian Church across from East Magnet. Will be a major component of the East Roundabout project.

Rendering of the 37206 Building, a component of Martin's Corner, and $20-30 Million development a stone's throw from Five Points. Replaces some real crap.

Love this house. On the periphery of Martin's Corner near 11th and Fatherland.

Thanks for these photos, Dave. East Nashville is truly beautiful as these pictures illustrate. I believe I've been to East Nashville once, and after seeing your pictures, I hope I get to make another trip before too much longer.
