Simply referred to as the Short North, this is the most vibrant and colorful neighborhood in Columbus.  A business community of local, independently owned galleries, restaurants/bars, retail stores, and small businesses has developed organically in this reborn historical and artsy district.

The monthly Gallery Hop draws art enthusiasts, people watchers, food and wine coneseurs, bar goers, street performers, and has helped in drawing increasing national attention to the Short North in recent years.
