Polish Hill

Head a few blocks east out of downtown, then make a sharp climb upward, and you’ll find yourself in Polish Hill, a nearly vertical quarter-mile expanse in a prime location between the Strip District and the Hill District. It’s a neighborhood in transition: Newcomers armed with outside-the-box renovation ideas and shoestring budgets settle in next to the great-grandchildren of Polish Hill’s earliest settlers. A cluster of artists adds to the mix in this affordable haven of creativity and community.
