Clintonville and the Beechwold areas are two of the older more urban areas of the city, in what used to be that far north side of the city and area. There are several books and websites describing this neighborhood (Beechwold is sometimes considered a totally separate neighboorhood from Clintonville and sometimes considered part of it), it's charm and history. It's probably one of my favorite areas of the city. It is not a huge hotbed for neon signs, but, it has some beauties and leads as a gateway of sorts to the urban core of Columbus. The further you travel south down High Street from about Broad Meadows Blvd. to Hudson Street, you go from a suburban landscape to a true inner city urban area. This is the start of the long tour of high street, which travelling south will go through the largest concentration of neon once we hit the campus area, short north, downtown, Brewery district, to German Village. Of course, there are several areas off High street, but High street contains the largest density of businesses along this corridor.
