Life is improving in other neighborhoods as well. In Central, just east of 1-35 and south of Lake Street, gang activity has decreased significantly in recent years, and while clearly still a work in progress, the East Lake Street business district is also being redeveloped. Restaurants, shops and cafes at the corner of Lake Street and Lyndale Avenue (Lyn-Lake) mark the beginnings of Uptown, and the rest of Lake Street's old-style commercial district is being updated a gun shop has been turned into the Midtown Cafe, and the Hispanic Mercado opened in the summer of 1999. Two complexes expected to have a great stabilizing impact on the Powderhorn community are the Great Lakes Center (old Sears building), which will bring government services, a transit center, offices and upscale retail into the community, and the already completed YWCA fieldhouse and aquatic center at 22nd and Lake. It provides a place to run, play basketball and swim. Housing in the Central neighborhood includes the grand Queen Anne "Healy Block," between Lake Street and East 31st Street along 2nd Avenue South. Once known as "crack alley," these historic houses have been rehabilitated, signaling a profound change in the neighborhood.
At the Far East end of Lake Street, the Corcoran neighborhood has been renewed with the adjacent Hiawatha LRT corridor.
