NE Union Ave & Eugene, 1929

Having trouble finding the corner of NE Union and Eugene on your modern maps? That’s because you’d now be looking at NE MLK Blvd and Thompson Street. Before the street renumbering of 1933, Eugene Street ran between Williams and 7th Avenues. Those three blocks became Thompson in 1933.

    I can see why you talked about the streets and not the buildings, that area is just a parking lot now.

    I live right down the street on Rodney. I like the cars that are for sale on that lot, but I’d rather have that building instead.
