Downtown Eugene

Downtown Eugene is the most dynamic neighborhood in Eugene, existing as the convergence between the University, Whiteaker, Jefferson Westside, Harlow and Cal Young neighborhoods. Taking a cross section of the people wandering downtown at any given time on any given day would provide an accurate example of the general demographic of Eugene.

This week we set out to establish the boundaries for our reporting zone. According to this map, the boundaries for “Downtown Eugene” are 4th to 14th Street, and Lincoln to Hilyard Street. 2478769313_464e0680c0_o

Downtown Eugene also hosts the Eugene Municipal Court, the David Minor Theater and WOW Hall, three sites popular among University of Oregon students, albeit for very different reasons.
