Emerald Street, NE (between E/F/13th/14th streets) has a fascinating history. A walking tour was held, Sunday, September 11, 2016.  See photos & handouts.

Tour goers learned about freewheeling land speculators, flamboyant developers, boom and bust, Emerald Street’s recovery from the 1968 riots, and its interesting architecture. Handout (Word file w/images)  Handout (.pdf text only)   Builders by Year (spreadsheet)
