There is nothing unique about my neighborhood in that is really considered shareable. When I gave the chance to move out of this area I will be.

I love that there are wonderful local restaurants, farmers markets and parks to meet up with friends.

It is conveniet fir single in terms of nightlife and bars. It is convenient for public transportation.
