Buyers considering purchases of Denver condos will want to investigate the Lincoln Park neighborhood, particularly if they want a home close to the downtown area or if they would like to live in close proximity to one of the arts districts of the city.
Lincoln Park is the oldest neighborhood in the city and currently serves as home to about 7,000 residents. Many of the houses in this neighborhood date from around the turn of the 20th century. Some of them still exist in intact form, while others have been divided inside into smaller residences such as townhouses and lofts. In many cases, these arrangements more closely suit the modern urban lifestyle that 21st century Americans prefer.
The ethnic makeup of the Lincoln Park neighborhood is diverse, with Caucasians making up almost a third of all residents. There is a small African American presence and a large Latino one. Interstate 25 runs through the area, providing residents with easy access to the freeway system in Denver in case their jobs are located far from downtown; for urban dwellers who prefer not to drive, the RTD light rail system also runs through the neighborhood.
The nearby arts district is located on Santa Fe Drive and includes over 40 different galleries and restaurants catering to both residents and visitors. Santa Fe Drive is also the home of the Denver Civic Theatre, one of the first silent movie theaters in Denver; and the Museo de las Américas, which is dedicated to the culture and art of the Latino community.
