Can anyone tell me a bit about how these two areas are different in terms of character, aesthetics, or other differences of note?

Sugarhouse is less dumpy/has more upscale areas.

I think these days the 9th and 9th area may get lumped in with the general area of "Sugarhouse." When I grew up, Sugarhouse seemed to have a little more smaller area in that it was generally the area specifically located around Sugarhouse park and then it met with the Harvard/Yale area around 1700 South. As SLC has grown, it seems the area known as "Sugarhouse" has also stretched farther and farther because people like to market their homes as "sugarhouse." It has grown to be more desireable over the last 15 or so years. In fact, I have seen properties very close to Liberty Park being referred to as "Sugarhouse" so I too question its true boundaries and what the true meaning of "Sugarhouse" is. I am intersted in what others have to say about this.

I knew someone who said he lived in "Sugarhood" meaning just off 700 E and 1700 S. That is not Sugar House.

To me, 9th and 9th has more concentrated commercial stuff. It's also down the hill and more prone to pancaking in an earthquake if the "big one" hits.

And I know someone who says her daughter lives in Sugarhouse, meaning just off 13th East and 33rd South. That's not Sugarhouse either.

I didn't know that (about the pancaking in an earthquake).

To the Sugarhouse experts out there, any thoughts on whether the 84105 or 84106 zip code within Sugarhouse is nicer?

I think it's a matter of person opinion, but I'd say 84106.

Sorry, Katz, I disagree. Disclaimer - I live in 84105. But it also includes Harvard/Yale and more expensive homes than 84106. That goes down to 33rd SO? #9th SO? And from 2700 on down the houses are just smaller.

I agree Belle in that the heart of what I think of is Sugarhouse is contained within 84105. However, I am no expert.

But the Harvard/Yale area is really pretty varied. We lived just above 17th East on Harvard for awhile (a very short while, but it seemed like forever). That, as I recall was in the 84108 area. As I recall, Harvard and Yale between 13th and 15th East is super ritzy, huge homes. Harvard and Yale between 15th and 17th was mostly smaller bungalos, and between 17th and 19th was kind of in between. There was a huge disparity between the three areas.
