Rocky Mountain News noted: “No more handsome location for residences can be found than on the highlands of , on the opposite side of the river from and overlooking Auraria and Denver, and a vast extent of surrounding territory. After many Denver (and then Auraria) residents moved up the hill after the 1864 flood the became a city in 1885.
Today, as then, The Lower Highlands, or LoHi as we know it the place to be and be seen. It shows up on Forbes top list of ‘s hippest neighborhoods #17.
LoHi is great; we’ve been frequenting there for many years, but now that the rest of America is getting a taste, will this mean we have to wait in line longer at Little Man? – still worth it. With all the highrise development, (which we think is good as long as it is controlled and responsible) will the crowds decked in Jimmy Choo and Nike Solitaire Kicks still pack Linger now that the view of downtown is totally blocked? Many of you say you come for the food, but we’ll see if it can hold on.
