Did you know?

Jefferson Street didn’t always continue north across Garden Street. It used to stop there. In 1982 Jefferson Street was extended to Chase Street, and the EGD is thankful that it did. Jefferson Street between Garden Street and Chase Street is planned to be the heart of the East Garden District project.
