Denver Neighborhoods – Five Points

Denver Neighborhoods – Five Points

The Five Points neighborhood is named because it is located at the point where the diagonal grid of downtown Denver meets East Denver’s rectangular grid, creating a five way intersection where Washington Street, 26th Street and Welton Avenue meet. The neighborhood lies within the east side of Denver.  Five Points is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver. Much of the neighborhood’s growth occurred during the 1860’s and there are many interesting, historic properties still standing within the area. The light rail and proximity of the neighborhood to downtown Denver have attracted many new folks into the neighborhood.

Keys to the City – Denver

Keys to the City – Denver

If you have ever been downtown during the months of July and up to September, you will notice that dotted on and around 16th street there are brightly painted pianos.

Artist: Naomi Haverland 2012

For those who don’t know, back in 2009, 7 brightly painted piano showed up on the 16th St Mall. And have now returned every year after, all get a paint face lift and are brought to life by passer-by’s. Fast forward to 2015, there are a collection of 10 pianos that savor the Denver summer.

There have been times where I will be walking the mall and you hear a beautiful tune. You stop to listen, and before you know it other folks with instruments are joining in the outside impromptu jam. If you haven’t seen it, played one or just appreciated the art. It is a must do in Denver.

If you have been do you have any favorite Keys to the City moment?
