About the Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood:

The Historic Roosevelt Neighborhood lies in Downtown Phoenix, bounded by McDowell and Van Buren Streets, 7th Avenue to Central Avenue. The history of the neighborhood is rich and deep and its future promising. With the current revitalization efforts taking place in Downtown, Roosevelt Neighborhood is at the center of new residential development. Brought to life by parks, a walkable scale, small businesses, neighborhood cafes and restaurants, and friendly people, the Roosevelt Neighborhood is becoming the “place to be” in the burgeoning urban core of Phoenix. 

Honored with the first distinction of historical designation in the City of Phoenix, the Roosevelt Neighborhood has a storied past. From its architectural milestones still visible today, its importance in Phoenix’s original booming tourist trade, and its role as one of the first “streetcar suburbs,” Roosevelt has remained a vital community to our city’s past, present, and future.
