The neighborhood setting is park-like. The wide main streets, Fairmont and Emoriland, are lined with sidewalks. The lots on the north side of Emoriland adjoining First Creek are very deep, with very large old trees lining the flood plain of the Knoxville’s most historic creek. The large trees along the streets and the creek screen the neighborhood from the noisy flow of traffic and the bustle of commerce on nearby Broadway and other busy streets.
