Old meets new is the perfect way to describe Uptown, where the city’s rich history and gentrification collide. The neighborhood is perpetually in transition, but you can still glean its faded glory as a thriving Art Deco entertainment district from the 20s and 30s. And while Target and Aldi are doing their part to spark its renaissance, Uptown is still a scrappy stronghold of ethnic eateries, cozy cafes, diverse residents and soulful music venues.
