Not that long, up until late 80s and early 90s, that was very Italian neighborhood. And up until 2010s there wasn't as many multifamily homes and townhouses. A lot of those homes were built at the beginning of 20th century.

Now, a lot of single family homes and even parking lots are being turned into massive multifamily homes, townhouses, and McMantions.

I know this area for over 20 years. Overpopulation was never as bad as in the last 5-10 years, and judging by the new construction, it will only get worse.

Lol granted I do the same thing with stuff from that era, but 1980s are coming up on 50 years ago. The Jewish community was always in that area (along with the Italians) The Italians just largely got displaced by Hispanics more downtown than in the 3rd ward park and rosemwar area

Also for food check out jaimitos (technically Clifton) and el fogon. Both great Peruvian places.

O, come on. 80s was 30, something to 40, something years ago. Let's not get ahead of ourselves here! 😂😂😂
