The Historic Old Northeast is one of St. Petersburg's most desirable neighborhoods, thanks largely to its closeness to downtown and its eclectic mix of housing. It's also bounded by Tampa Bay to the east, and the wide open waterfront is a draw for runners, cyclists and dog walkers.
The median house price in the neighborhood is $408,000, according to 2015 data from Zillow.
Bounded by Fifth Avenue N, Fourth Street N, 30th Avenue N and Tampa Bay, the Old Northeast features a wide variety of home styles: Mediterranean, Italian Renaissance, Craftsman bungalow, ranch-style, cottage and Dutch colonial.
Several of the streets are still made of Augusta bricks, and the hex block sidewalks have become a symbol of the neighborhood, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's St. Petersburg's oldest neighborhood, established in 1911. [Read more about the history of the area here.]
Amenities: North Shore Pool (open year-round); dog park; tennis courts; waterfront parks; paved running and cycling trails; beach.
Be prepared: Each Halloween, thousands of trick-or-treaters descend on the neighborhood to partake in the festive atmosphere. Many homeowners stage elaborate decorations, and several streets are closed off to create a carnival atmosphere.
