"Quiet but Close to the Action"

There are some strange looking houses in this neighborhood. They have a lot of roof and they sort of remind me of bungalows because they have the same kind of recessed, highly sheltering verandas. But unlike bungalows they are bigger and sometimes two-storied. This neighborhood also has a lot of those really ugly 1970’s style apartments—very square and ugly.

As to living here, the rent prices vary a bit going from about $800/mo to $1400 for a two-bedroom in the area. The price of homes here are a little higher than in some of the surrounding neighborhoods going for closer to $400K than $300K. They aren’t that much better but the neighborhood is somewhat quieter than the surrounding areas.

This is actually a pretty chill area. It’s residential so you’ll have to step out of the neighborhood to the north to go to a bar or get a bite to eat. This is kind of a good thing, if you live here, because then you can have less traffic and some peace and quiet.

Overall not a bad little place to live if you want to be within walking distance of the action in and around Downtown.
