Music Row is the best hodgepodge of visible Nashville landmarks. Vanderbilt’s Peabody College and University School of Nashville slowly blend into bungalows converted into record label offices and then into residential streets. Even the Bank of America on 16th Avenue South is a restored, gabled gem.
The area’s best kept secret is Scarritt-Bennett Center, a Neo-gothic retreat offering quiet grounds for strolling. Public green spaces include Tony Rose Park, a small playground pocket behind Music Circle South, and Owen Bradley Park, a grassy peninsula opening up to Division Street.
The Music Row neighborhood bumps into Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities, as well as onto the ever growing commercial strip on upper 21st Avenue South.
