Our City Online

Short North

Centered on the main stretch of High Street north of downtown Columbus and extending just south of The Ohio State University’s campus, the Short North experienced street-level crime and gang violence as affluent Columbus residents followed the economic bubble into the suburbs during the 1960s and ’70s. Its rebirth began when art galleries began to open there in the ’80s. Most of its buildings date back to at least the early 20th century, with traditional storefronts along High and apartment buildings, row houses and condominium developments in the surrounding blocks.
