i love the energy in the neighborhood. there's so many people around and there's so many things to do

Everyone is really nice and friendly people love biking and going to the park that is really close to home

My neighborhood is unique because it is a very good mix of old and new architecture. I love all of the shops downtown and the restaurants are all fantastic.
