49/63

True, the organization known as the 49/63 Neighborhood Coalition doesn't represent a single urban neighborhood but a diverse collection, including Rockhill Ridge, with its pre-Depression bungalows; the hoity-­toity Crestwood enclave; and South Park, an area just east of Troost, from 59th to 63rd streets. This area has been "emerging" as an alternative to the suburbs for years, but when the housing market tanked, the solidly constructed homes — built primarily in the 1920s, '30s and '40s — didn't lose as much value as some of the newer, prefab crackerboxes around town. As the Troost corridor becomes less of a historical racial dividing line and more of a development opportunity, the potential for enticing new residents to a vibrant, multicultural community is enhanced. It's also a place where walking — to the pharmacy, a restaurant, the bank — remains a pleasure.
