The other side of the area to the west of Westport is this 4 block area with restaurants and shops for locals and tourists to come by. It is all from the 1940-50's era, and the buildings have been restored mostly, even though some not yet touched in upper floors. It can be a bit "seedy" at times, so beware of what and where you go and do. Jimmy's Jigger is a restaurant near the center, and a bit more for locals to drink.
