A haven for com­mu­nity or­ga­niz­ing and ac­tivism, Lind­say Heights is the area be­tween West Lo­cust Street to the north, North 12th Street to the east, West Wal­nut Street to the south and North 20th Street to the west. Af­ter this area was hit hard by the 2008 hous­ing cri­sis, it bounced back by fo­cus­ing on af­ford­able hous­ing and sus­tain­able food, with no small thanks due to the Wal­nut Way Con­ser­va­tion Corp., which pro­vides a range of com­mu­nity pro­grams. Lind­say Heights also hosts a Har­vest Day event each year with live music and pro­duce from com­mu­nity gar­dens, and it bor­ders on the large Fondy Farm­ers Mar­ket. Lind­say Heights is home to healthy hot spots The Juice Kitchen and Out­post Nat­u­ral Foods’ Learn­ing & Events Cen­ter. Cof­fee Makes You Black is an­other place for light meals.
