Local Reviews

I like how friendly the neighbors are thruout, how quiet and clean it is. As well as how close to shopping and restaurants it is at. How well lit it is at night to be able to take night walks or bike

The most unique feature of the area is the heavy concentration of gays. There are literally dozens and dozens of good restaurants such as The Park House and Great Maple. Good retail although no big box stores

I love walking to around 20-plus restaurants, bars, gyms, and other places. This is a beautiful neighborhood

The favorite things are that it's so close to the hospitals,and grocery shopping options. It's within walking distance to an amazing local restaurant called little cottage cafe.

very nice area a lot parks, restaurants shops, markets, amusements, gallery, clothes store, bakery, bar, pub, coffee bar

Well for 1 thing we are very close to a park for little kids & I love to entertain little kids & babies.
