Category:King-Lincoln Bronzeville (Columbus, Ohio)
Just east of Downtown Columbus, King-Lincoln Bronzeville is bordered by the Mount Vernon neighborhood and Atcheson Street on the north, 20th Street on the east, Olde Towne East and Broad Street on the south, and I-71 on the west. The area was at one time much larger, including parts of what is now the Discovery District. The creation of I-71 significantly cut the area off from Downtown, causing socioeconomic decline and the growth of crime and violence. The neighborhood has become the focus of the city's revitalization efforts which include renovation of the historic Lincoln Theatre, construction of new condos and expansion of retail space along Mt. Vernon Avenue and Long Street, which hosts the annual Long Street Tour cycling event.
