Local Reviews

I like the neighbors and the best eateries around town. The best little mexican restaurant (Colimas) is around the corner.

I love the fact that I can go to the zoo,the museums,and the stores on foot. I have some gay friends and it's heartwarming to know they are safe here

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

Everything is walkable. Lots of, dining and bars everywhere. Grocery stores everywhere too. Love the taco shops!

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

Easy access to public transportation, business area with many stores to choose from . Enjoy bring anle to walk to several grocery stores and restsursnts including a faborite Pho shop.
