Local Reviews

There are lots of bars and restaurants nearby-- I love El Chucho, Little Food Studio, Honeymoon Chicken, Reliable Tavern, and Midlands.

I love that i feel safe and that lots will of shops are nearby. Giant , chipotle you name it . There are also vets and parks where you can walk dogs

. maggianos, cheesecake factory are near. its familiar. but everything is closing now. and its becoming a vacant empty ghost town

It's near downtown so great views and many place to eat. Lots of museums and arcades around plus the roads are great , business vibes

Safe, friendly neighbor hood with lots of kids and families. Close distance to public transportation and close to markets, restaurants drug stores etc.

I love the neighborhood I love in. There is a heavy LGBT+ presence, and the area is quite supportive of human rights.
