What are the boundaries of the Historic Eastside?
The Historic Eastside Neighborhood is bounded by 9th Avenue on the North, 3rd Avenue on the South and Kimbark and Martin Streets on the West and East, respectively.
HENA is a non-HOA neighborhood group, and so it only represents residents within these boundaries.
