When referring to “above the crosstown” or “outside the crosstown”, locals are really just saying what is north of HWY 17 which bisects the center of the city of downtown Charleston. As you come off the bridge into the city from Mt Pleasant or off I-26 into town you’re on 17 and that travels across the city. So that’s what we mean by the “crosstown” because over time when people were referring to downtown they would say it’s “across town“. 

Real estate in this side of the city which is known as zip code 29403 are traditionally more affordable on the peninsula and this area of downtown Charleston which starts above Calhoun St north to Mt Pleasant Street. These neighborhoods known as boroughs are Wagener Terrace, Ansonborough, Westside, Wraggborough, Radcliffeborough, Eastside, Elliottborough, Hampton Park Terrace, and the newest area NoMo (North of Morrison). There are newer communities seeing development in this side of town, such as Lowndes Point, and the newest “NOMO” where developers and businesses are investing heavily.
