The streets of Whiteaker are filled with cars buzzing by and people walking around to soak up the sun. Everywhere you look you are surrounded by small businesses ranging from a barbershop to an all vegan restaurant named Cornbread Cafe. Walking down 7th is an adventure all on its own. The trek, though tiring, is filled with sights unseen. Hidden on 7th beneath the honking cars are different artworks plastered on building sides. These paintings and sculptures give Whiteaker a personality unlike any other. A unique find of a fierce lion can be spotted tucked away on 7th and Monroe St. These unexpected pieces of art are reason enough to explore the hectic yet enjoyable streets of Whiteaker.
