As Others See Us ...


"'Midtown is Memphis,' proclaim the proud bumper stickers you'll see all over the city. Midtown encompasses some of Memphis' most historic neighborhoods, such as Central Gardens and Evergreen, as well as some of its hippest quarters, like the happening Cooper-Young and Idlewild areas. In Midtown, you'll find urban artists and university students mixing with young professionals and old Memphis families, creating a vibrant arts district known for antique shops, galleries, coffee shops, craft stores, restaurants and bars."

The "hip" and "happening" Idlewild area, eh? Guess we shouldn't be picky when a Nashville newspaper writes a story that reads like a brochure from the Memphis Convention & Visitors Bureau. To read all about the glories of our fair city, go here.
