BEST NEIGHBORHOOD — PINELLAS

Old Northeast

Share on Nextdoor

First, let´s define what we´re talking about. Old Northeast is nestled within the historic district of St. Petersburg and lies within the following boundaries: north of Fifth Avenue N., south of 30th Avenue N., east of Fourth Street N., and west of that big pond we call the Bay. Its quiet, tree-lined streets make for a relaxing stroll without having to worry about being mugged. Plus, it boasts the St. Pete version of Bayshore: Coffee Pot Boulevard. Run or ride your bike along the water and check out how smoothly the older architecture and new housing flow together. Downtown is a stone´s throw away, chock full of museums, bars, quaint shops, the touristy fun of The Pier and the movies at BayWalk. The best part? Old Northeast is an actual neighborhood, not one of those generic-looking, ¨hey-you-can-have-one-of-these-three-models¨ developments popping up on every available drained swamp and flood plane.
