Weinland Park

Named for Edgar Weinland, a popular city councilman in the 1920s, the neighborhood is bounded by High Street to the west, Fifth Avenue to the south, railroad tracks to the east, and the east-west alley north of Chittenden Avenue to the north. Thanks to public and private investments, home renovation and new construction is on the upswing and the area is steadily becoming a stable, mixed-income neighborhood.
