Aaron Reese

His favorite places near the Campus District: Playhouse Square and Number One Pho at East 31nd and Superior.

A “hidden gem” in the district that more people should know about: The many artist galleries and work spaces in the Superior Arts Quarter.

One new thing he would add to the district: More parks and green spaces.
