24 hours on Butler Street

Butler Street in Lawrenceville is dotted with flavor every step of the way from the 34th to the 54th block. Bakeries, cafes, coffee houses, bars, sandwich shops, pizza joints and ethnic restaurants sit on either side of the street and range from casual to upscale and everything in between. While some open at the crack of dawn, life at the others begins at dusk, making Butler a street that barely sleeps.
