The Old Market Historic District is at the center of Omaha’s arts and entertainment district downtown. Old Market is filled with restaurants, art galleries and plenty of upscale shopping for even the most fastidious shopper. True to its name, the neighborhood preserves much of the late nineteenth century architecture, with brick-paved streets, refurbished brick warehouses and antique fashioned lampposts. While perusing the streets of Old Market, it’s not irregular to see horse-drawn carriages, street entertainers or neighboring artists selling their wares.
Old Market Omaha apartments are especially appealing to young residents; however, being within walking distance to so many attractions comes with a premium price, so finding low-cost living is a challenge, though not impossible. Because of the city’s commitment to public transportation, this neighborhood is easily navigated without a personal vehicle. The downtown atmosphere, charming historic district and easy transportation make enjoying an Old Market apartment easy for any young professional.
