"Trying and gentrifying"
My brother lived on Indianola, right around 12th St, and the little neighborhood there is working to establish itself. There are a wide variety of ages represented, and people maintain their houses and yards pretty well. A few of the older residents bought the houses new in the '40s and '50s, and are some of the nicest people there. A lot of 30something professionals are in the area, and a good number of families with kids. There's a park just around the corner, adjacent to an elementary school. You have to go up to Camelback to get shopping done, but it's not far. The light rail is within biking distance, too.
