North Lawrence is one of the most well-known, but sometimes least understood, areas of Lawrence. Situated north of the Kansas River, just across from Downtown, North Lawrence is as old as Lawrence itself. Primarily a residential area, it's also home to several local businesses that have been here for ages, such as Johnny's Tavern, a local favorite bar and restaurant. Many of the homes were built prior to the 1960's, but near the river levee, there are several unique homes not to be found anywhere else in town, built very recently. These homes are modern and contemporary, green and eco-friendly, efficient and conscious of their surroundings. The homes that have been here for years have been taken care of by residents, many of whom have lived here their whole lives and show great pride in their corner of Lawrence. North Lawrence sometimes feels like a different city altogether. The streets seem bucolic and narrow, the area seems sleepy and relaxed, the trains roll on through like clockwork. I don't make it to North Lawrence as often as I should, but when I do go there, I'm always glad I did.
