Brady Street Photowalk

Brady Street is filled with coffee houses, nightclubs, restaurants, vintage clothing and thrift stores. Saturday, July 18th from 4 - 6PM saw over 50 photographers descend on the area to put Brady Street on the photo enthusiast map.

In the 1880's, Brady Street became a commercial district of Yankee and German shops. In the 1960's, Italians and other groups began to leave the neighborhood for the suburbs, while the hippies and other bohemians moved in. The 1980's saw blight, neglect and decay, but now the area has been revitalized and has become a model for New Urbanism.
