NSNA Releases Aerial Video!

Watch The Near South Neighborhood Aerial Video

The Near South Neighborhood Association (NSNA), one of Lincoln’s oldest and most active neighborhood associations, has produced an aerial video showcasing the unique character of this historic part of Lincoln.  It is believed that it is the first Lincoln neighborhood to make such a film.  The video, filmed last summer using drone technology, highlights historic residential properties, schools, businesses, and the area’s close-to-downtown vibe.
Historic Near SouthThe video can be viewed here.
“This is just one more example of the great energy we have in our Near South Neighborhood,” said Carmen Maurer, a member of the NSNA board.  “We hope this helps inform others what we already know—that this is a neighborhood with something for everyone,” she said.  The neighborhood offers homes for every size pocketbook, great schools and parks, all of it within walking and biking distance of Lincoln’s Hay Market, Downtown and Antelope Valley districts.”
“As our video says…We’re new; we’re old, our future is bold. We are poised to be one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, as residents seek lifestyles convenient to Downtown work and play,” she said.
NSNA was formed in 1972, first coining the name “Near South” for the neighborhood.  It is comprised of the area from 13th to 27th Streets, South Street to G Street.   Its mission is “Promoting historic preservation, neighborhood revitalization and low density land use in the Near South Neighborhood.”

In addition to the aerial video, other NSNA signature events include: Ice Cream Social, Plant Sale, Spring Cleanup, Historic Walking Tours, Mother’s Day Tour of Homes, and Holiday Luminarias.
