Living in Wasatch Hollow, Salt Lake City Posted: 01 Aug 2015 | By: Craig Hanks
The Wasatch Hollow neighborhood is located in the southeast area of Salt Lake City. It is primarily residential, but is centered around the “15th & 15th” business district, which features local shops and some of Salt Lake City’s favorite restaurants. In fact, Wasatch Hollow is often simply called “15th & 15th”.
Wasatch Hollow is named for the natural space created by Emigration Creek, which flows through the area. The space is now a park open for recreation, events, picnics and nature walks.
Living in Rose Park, Salt Lake City Posted: 01 Aug 2015 | By: Craig Hanks
Rose Park sprang up in the ‘40s and ‘50s in response to the post-war demand from employees of the nearby rail yards. Its brick cottages sit on tree-lined streets that were designed by the developer to resemble flowers when viewed from the sky (hence the name of the neighborhood).
Rose Park is a neighborhood with a less-than-stellar reputation that was earned in previous decades but that may now be outdated.

Living in the Avenues, Salt Lake City Posted: 01 Aug 2015 | By: Craig Hanks
The Avenues is a mostly residential neighborhood and one of Salt Lake City’s oldest districts. It has oodles of charm and very little commercial activity outside of a grocery store and a few cafes.
Diversity is the motto here in the Avenues, in both housing and residents. It’s not uncommon to see mansions next to bungalows or a classic cottage next to an apartment building. Likewise with its contingent of students, professionals, artists, lawyers, businesspeople—you name it, and you’re likely to find it here.
