Explore Central District

The Central District was once a close-knit African American neighborhood, but gentrification has brought sweeping change. Now, developers have taken over the old community hubs, but you can still find killer Ethiopian restaurants tucked into the sea of trendy joints selling pho or chicken and waffles. The area's cultural roots are alive at the well-curated Northwest African American Museum and the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.
