Downtown Little Rock has been on the upswing for the better part of a decade.

Anchored by the River Market and its amenities including museums, libraries, restaurant-bars, cultural attractions and a Presidential library, there's plenty to feel positive about.

Talk Business Arkansas' Roby Brock sat down with one of the main movers and shakers in this endeavor, Sharon Priest, executive director of the Downtown Little Rock Partnership.
