This week in We Create Here, correspondent Katie Mills Giorgio takes an in-depth look at the hard work, vision and persistence behind the revival of Cedar Rapids' New Bohemia/Czech Village neighborhoods. The story is one in a series of occasional articles We Create Here is publishing to highlight collaborative efforts and innovative approaches to addressing shared needs in the Corridor.

She writes: "Third Street SE in the heart of the New Bohemia neighborhood is a place to see and be seen.

A place to browse locally owned shops for vintage furniture or high-end fashion or books. To meet over a cup of coffee, a beer or a meal. To experience artists’ installations or shop your way through the NewBo City Market — the latest jewel adding to the neighborhood’s vibrancy, novelty and diversity.

It is a place that few would have envisioned some 30 years ago."
