Local Reviews

Love the small businesses and walkability of the area. There are lots of shops, restaurants and activities near by. There is decent parking and public transportation.

I have lived here for 20 years. It is an amazing neighborhood with great people. The third best elementary school in the city.

Decent options for pubs/restaurants, while still not a noisy neighbourhood. Very well connected with public transport & walkable.

I like that the neighborhood is very walkable and very close to public transportation. There are plenty of entertainment options such as plenty of restaurants and bars in the area.

It's has a big softball complex across the road. It is hidden so nobody knows that there's even a street. And no outlet dead end road

I love living in a walkable community, where I don't need to own a car to go about my daily life. I also love living just a short walk from the park and Lake Michigan. It's great for recreation.
