Top 10 Neighborhoods in Columbus of 2016
Central Ohio is filled with a wide variety of dense urban neighborhoods, laid-back suburban communities and everything else in between. This year, when we asked our readers and contributors to nominate and select the number one neighborhood in the city, they picked Downtown Columbus for the first time ever.
Once a thriving place to live in the mid twentieth century, much of Downtown Columbus was emptied out and bulldozed by “urban renewal” to make room for parking lots. That emptiness began to change nearly twenty years ago when the efforts of former Mayor Michael B. Coleman took root to bring people back Downtown. Now that several waves of condo and apartment construction have been completed, thousands of new residents are calling the area home, and the concept of “neighborhood” has returned to the Downtown core of the city.
