North Central Corridor
The North Central Corridor of Central Phoenix reminds us that this city was once home to ranchers and cowboys, a real western town. Most notable is Murphy’s Bridal Path, originally for riders on horseback, right along Central Avenue between Bethany Home Road and Northern Avenue. Today the popular and picturesque, tree-lined, unpaved artery hosts joggers, dog walkers and baby strollers. Located from 7th Avenue east to 7th Street, and between Missouri and Northern Avenues, the North Central Corridor features a real mix of traditional ranch homes and upscale renovations that seamlessly create cohesive mini-neighborhoods. With excellent public, charter, and private schools, it is no surprise that many families choose the area over the more pricey Arcadia neighborhood. Homes here range from $600k to over $2 million. With the culture and business districts of downtown Phoenix only a few miles south, the North Central Corridor is the perfect balance of urban lifestyle and rural living.
