This neighborhood is absorbing growth yet maintaining its connected, historic feel. Eclectic mix of people, and walking distance to downtown. Just remember you are in a city -- there is still petty theft here.
This area is a big region for customer service industry. The main businesses are bars, restaurants, salons, ect. Although there are numerous establishments within walking distance, the job opportunities are few and far between. I have heard the turnover is low and the competition is high.
