Old Northeast

Old Northeast Neighborhood

Old Northeast is a community of homes that were built in the first half of the last century. It was the first established neighborhood within the city of St. Petersburg and is a true “urban neighborhood.”

The St. Petersburg Times gave their opinion of the neighborhood in an article they wrote in 2001:”If the heart of St. Petersburg is its downtown, the city’s soul probably resides in the North Shore area.

It was there, in the section now called Old Northeast, that St. Petersburg blossomed from a village of farmers’ homesteads to a town of boom-time prosperity.

It thrives still, having the oldest and perhaps most influential neighborhood association in the city. Real estate values, even in some of the lower-income pockets, continue to rise. Most of St. Petersburg’s movers and shakers have lived at one time or the other in a North Shore neighborhood.”


You can learn more about the history of this beautiful neighborhood at the Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood Association website.

The Historic Old Northeast is a leafy residential area with brick streets and waterfront green spaces, including the Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum and expansive Vinoy Park. Dating from the early 1900s, the Sunken Gardens feature tropical plants and flamingos, and the nearby Great Explorations Children’s Museum has creative, play-based exhibits. Cafes, casual chain restaurants, and taco spots line 4th Street North.
