Starting with the York Street mansions, the eastern section of Uptown is broad-shouldered Denver squares mixed with scattered Victorians and urban-chic condos. The middle blocks are mostly older Victorians and brick apartment buildings as well as Queen Ann’s with gorgeous, wrap-around porches. These first two sections share an aesthetic of canopied tree-lined streets, plots of grass and small front yards. In contrast, the western side of Uptown is almost entirely high-rises, parking lots and apartment buildings with more concrete and glass than trees and grass.
