  1. Hillcrest: The best neighborhood in Little Rock

    I live in a two-story brick house on Ridgeway Street that my neighbors would surely like to see spiffed up, but Ridgeway is in Hillcrest, and because Hillcrest attracts an eclectic, tolerant type of person, the neighbors have never complained. At least not directly to me.

  2. The River Market: Raised from the dead

    Nearly 15 years after what we know today as the River Market district was born, it's still a neighborhood without a clear identity.

  3. SoMa peeks over the hump

    When I first moved to the Quapaw Quarter in 1997, the question asked by friends and acquaintances was "Is it safe down there?"

  4. The Central promise

    Say "Central" and most people familiar with Little Rock will reflexively add "High" to it. The school is the city's most famous icon. Today, the neighborhood surrounding Central High is seeking to vie for its share of attention — and with some success.

  5. In the center of things in Midtown

    I live in Midtown, also known as the Hall High neighborhood, where proximity is everything. I enjoy boasting that I can get anywhere I need to be in 15 minutes or less.

  6. Living the American dream in Capitol View/Stifft Station

    Even though three members of the seven-person editorial staff of the Arkansas Times, including me, reside in the Capitol View/Stifft Station neighborhood, initially there was talk of unceremoniously lumping the neighborhood in with Hillcrest. People do that all the time, in my experience, and I don't like it one bit.

  7. Levy: Durable as the stuff in a hardware store

    Seen from the interstate, on the way from somewhere to somewhere, Levy looks picturesque, even pretty, nestled in the bowl of a valley west of North Little Rock's Park Hill, a patchwork of rooftops sticking up above the trees.

  8. Planned, lakeside living in Lakewood

    I've spent most of my adult life as a vagabond of sorts, living in such diverse areas as New York and Paragould, Ark., and everywhere in between. I recently settled into a two bedroom, two-bath apartment on McCain Boulevard in Lakewood, and I'd be hard-pressed to name a more ideal location in terms of convenience in Central Arkansas.

  9. Argenta: Revival on Main Street

    Old houses with tons of character. Local shops with locally produced goods. Neighborhood bars and restaurants run by your neighbors. Dedicated trails for biking and walking.

  10. Maumelle hitting growth spurt

    At 7:20 a.m. on a recent Wednesday, cars crawled along Maumelle Boulevard.

  11. Many shades of green in Pleasant Valley

    In the last two decades, there's been an undercurrent of tension that hums along the western expanse of the Cantrell Road/state Highway 10 area from Interstate 430 to Chenal Parkway.

  12. Proud to live in West Little Rock

    When my husband and I first moved to Little Rock, we knew little about the area and had no preconceived notions about the metro's various neighborhoods. We came here with an open mind, eager to explore our new home, excited to see where our tastes would lead us.

  13. Underground SWLR

    I wake up early on this crisp, chilly autumn Sunday morning, my head still aching from the one-too-many beers I drank last night around that bonfire at my trailer park on Stanton Road, where a bunch of my neighbors and I talked shop, exchanged anecdotes, told dirty jokes and belly-laughed copiously way into the wee hours of the morning.

  14. The rich history of Riverdale

    Northwest of downtown and adjacent to the Arkansas River lies Little Rock's Riverdale neighborhood, an area that has been an important part of my life and my family's history.

  15. Aspiring to great Heights

    At the risk of sounding like some nostalgic curmudgeon, the Heights that I grew up in during the '70s and '80s is a far cry from the Heights of today.

  16. In praise of urban living in Little Rock

    Living in the core of downtown Little Rock is the ultimate reverse commute.
