Here at Gaslight Property, we love the neighborhood where our brick-and-mortar office is located and where many of our rental units are also located—in the Gaslight District of Clifton. It’s been an exciting year for the Gaslight District, and as the year draws to a close it only makes sense to point out some of the highlights of 2022.
The newest business in the neighborhood, the Taproom on Ludlow, opened in October. Along with serving more than two dozen craft beers, the Taproom sponsors such events as live music, salsa dancing, trivia night, open mic, live comedy. Another selling point for the Taproom: It’s owned by the same people who own Habanero, a restaurant offering Latin American fare; that restaurant is located right beside The Taproom, and many people eat Habanero food while quaffing a beer at The Taproom.
We were happy to see that Auntie Apple’s Kitchen, which specializes in Cantonese food, became a hit soon after they opened. Located at 321 Ludlow Avenue, Auntie Apple’s Kitchen is right across the street from the Esquire Theatre. They have a friendly staff – and they were nice enough to pose for this photo shortly after the restaurant opened.
We were also pleased when VADA Gallery opened in the summer. Located at 3408 Telford Street, this new art gallery quickly became part of the fabric of the neighborhood. VADA Gallery has a strong social media presence, and you might want to follow them on Facebook and/or Instagram to keep up with their exhibits and events. Also, when you’re visiting VADA, remember there’s another gallery located on a nearby side street (the Off-Ludlow Gallery, located at 3408 Ormond Street).
In 2022, Clifton Plaza continued to expand its range of free events, with live music, improv comedy, salsa dancing, and more. Also, if you’ve visited the Gaslight District recently, you’ve noticed that the neighborhood just keeps looking better. We have new murals at the Howell Avenue Parking Lot and on the side of Arlin’s, making an already picturesque neighborhood that much prettier.
