Remembered Columbus - Olde Towne East & Franklin Park

Olde Towne East

A historic streetcar suburb, this is where the rich people lived before they moved on to Bexley to the east. Still undergoing gentrification, there are some really nice areas. It's so hard to think we left neighborhoods like this for dead.

1st 12 are on Bryden Rd most of the rest are on Broad.

Notice the doll heads in the windows.






The neighborhood association wanted this guy to take his sign down because it doesn't fit in with the style of the neighborhood.



Not an uncommon sight to see rainbow flags here.





























Condo conversion fell through leaving this building in limbo years later.



Demolished for a grass lot fronting a parking lot.



The philanthropy organization behind the demolition which states that no one wanted it.











































Amazing mansion, you'd be looking at several million were you to try building this from scratch today.





Home Tour 2010 pics









































Over to Franklin Park.





Not on tour, but I had to include it.



A brief hop north of Broad into Woodland Park.





View from the 4,300 sq ft penthouse.



Franklin Park

The neighborhood of Franklin Park is anchored (and overshadowed) by the park of same name which is home to the city's conservatory. While the commercial streets of Main and Oak both leave much to be desired, the neighborhood boasts some impressive residential streets that have made quite a comeback while everyone's attention was on Olde Towne East. I didn't even get Franklin Park's stretch of Bryden St, which basically looks like the ones already included: Franklin Park W, Franklin Park S, Franklin Ave, and Rhoads Ave.

Train!











































A reminder that this is Columbus.



There's some sort of wood theme going on here.









Cute and tiny.



The Columbus Castle rowhouse.



These are a bit more drab, but add more variety.







AT&T?



The side entrance.



Nice!





The main entrance.





Enough ice thawed so that the ducks have a place to hang out.

I really can't tell you how appreciative I am that you're showing Columbus's underrated neighborhoods. I'm a Cincinnati native, but if I ever moved back to Ohio, Columbus would be at the top of the list

Olde Towne East is a gem of a neighborhood.

#8 on the list looks exactly like the house on E. Frambes where I roomed the second and third quarters I was in grad school at Ohio State.

Thanks for posting these pictures.

Beautiful. I love the way they repeated the tablet pattern with the windows, fence, etc.

Nice tour. Some beautiful houses here, filled with charm and character. Reminds me a lot of expensive residential neighbourhoods from my city.

The difference being that these go for something in the $200,000-$300,000 range and quite a bit less if you're willing to do some extra work.

Thanks for posting! A good example of the amazing and diverse housing stock that can be found in C-bus.
