Love the walkability, restaurants and shops! Everyone is always ready to help their neighbors. Street parking sucks if you live near the part where there are more apartments than houses. Everyone has dogs and is very active. There are numerous parks within half a mile from the area. Housing is petty expensive right now but the value has always been there and will most likely never go down.

This is a very welcoming neighborhood! With all of the beautiful trees, safely tucked-away streets, and huge parks, this area has an amazing small-town feel that's missing in much of greater-Denver.
I love the neighborhood. It is quiet and the houses are charming. We are close to everything from downtown, cherry creek, the interstates, and DIA. I hope to one day be able to purchase a home in this neighborhood.
