"For the lover of trains"
Running parallel with the Union Pacific, Kentucky St offers some good railway spotting opportunities East of Beale St. The rail yards are fenced but that doesn't prevent you from getting a good look at the rail operations as they occur. You can get a different view by heading over to Edison Highway near Washington St. You're a little further from the action though but get a more unrestricted view. The area is typical of low income housing however there are a few really nice homes that would have been quite something when they were constructed.
