The first Alleyup neighborhood gathering was in my apartment on February 10th, 2013. I was very nervous but it turned out to be an amazing afternoon. Great people, great food and great conversation. It was lovely getting to meet everyone and chatting up ideas about the potential of the alley. I’ve lived here 18 years, but there are many other residents that have been here since the original Dog Town days of the 70’s. It was the beginning of the forming of trusting neighborly friendships.
