Tucson’s Dunbar Springs Neighborhood was featured in a recent New York Times article. Platted in 1904, this is the neighborhood just north of the El Presidio in downtown Tucson that was the city’s first black neighborhood. Today there are many artists, environmentalists and local food activists living in the area.
