Steeped in history, the pillars of this historically African-American neighborhood include the Mt. Zion Baptist Church, the Veterans’ Memorial YMCA, named in honor of a cadre of African-American troops in WWII, and the lunchtime favorite, Weenie Beanie. The hills and occasional narrow walkways in Nauck offer a challenge, but the reward is in its discoveries—like the seasonal displays of colorful annuals at the main gateway to the community.
