“On one hand, it is very much a diverse ethnic neighborhood, and on the other hand, it is closely allied with the business establishment,” notes Goodstein. “The hopes, aspirations and frustrations of Denver have centered around Curtis Park and Five Points for the last fifty years.” Two of the oldest neighborhoods in town, Curtis Park and Five Points are home to many distinct and historic structures, which the author says creates an interesting “schizophrenic attitude” about the preservation versus modernization of a changing city.
