The 78 official neighborhoods of the City and County of Denver.

The City and County of Denver, capital of the U.S. state of Colorado, has 78 official neighborhoods as of January 2013.[1] In addition to the official administrative neighborhoods, many residents have names for local neighborhoods that may not conform to the boundaries of official neighborhoods. Denver does not have any official larger area designations, unlike the City of Chicago for example, which has larger areas that house the neighborhoods (IE: Northwest Side). Denver residents use the terms "north" "south" "east" and "west" loosely, and the neighborhoods as categorized below reflect this.[2]
