"Nicely maintained homes in middle class neighborhood"
Shepherd Street is a nice street in a middle class neighborhood that is close enough to shopping and services, but far enough away from the downtown area that residents can feel isolated from the politics of the city. The homes here are mostly middle-class and they are well maintained, considering the state of the economy. This is a working class neighborhood and you can see homeowners outside on the weekends making improvements or repairs to their properties, which is always nice to see. There are a lot of kids on this street for some reason -- at least, they are not afraid to play outside. This is not a neighborhood for singles looking for some action, but it is a very good neighborhood for those who are settled down or want to have a quiet family life. It's quiet, calm and crime free, which is important.
