ST. PETERSBURG – So far the vision for recreating this city’s famed waterfront includes promenades and music stages, “living breakwaters” of plants to protect the shore and more parks in which to congregate, outdoor markets and an active port and marina district. Even redevelopment of Al Lang Stadium is a possibility.
The plan that ultimately will show what the city’s bayfront will look like — from Lassing Park north to Coffee Pot Bayou — goes on public display during three days of work sessions this week.
The Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood Association (HONNA) invites you to become a member and support the neighborhood.
HONNA was founded in 1974 to promote, preserve, and protect quality of life in our unique corner of the world. Find out more about the neighborhood’s history here, and about the neighborhood association here.
Today’s Old Northeast neighborhood was the first established neighborhood within the City of St. Petersburg. Its amenities, proximity to downtown and parks, and coherent and traditional sense of neighborhood continue to be its strengths nearly a full century after it first became a residential area. An article in the St. Petersburg Times (Jul 1, 2001) described the neighborhood in these words:
The Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood has experienced a number of sever storms over the years. Although we have been very fortunate not have sustain significant damage or injury, natural disasters, like hurricanes, tropical storms, and tornadoes can surprise us at any time, especially from the months of July through November.
