          I would disagree with that statement. Most of 94 North was built as a buffer between the residential neighborhoods to the west and what was then and still largely is industrial area along the river.

            This shot from 1957 looks like a pretty nice neighborhood from above. Yes, industrial line(d) the river, but streets connected well with it and had nice transition in many spots from industrial to lighter/smaller industry surrounded by commercial/mixed-use to residential. Compare that to today.
