Changing Denver: Colfax Avenue

Changing Denver is a podcast hosted by Paul Karolyi about the city’s physical spaces, how we make them and how they make us. This month it looks at big, bad Colfax Avenue.

Phil Goodstein, local historian, tells us how Colfax got its name and reputation. You can find many of his books at the Denver Public Library’s Western History Reading Room and you can learn more about the walking tours he leads around Denver here.
