Great historic houses and a wide selection of Italian, Asian, and Mexican restaurants. Always full of life and pedestrians.

I love it! There are so many different stores for anything that you need. There are local convenience stores with foods on almost every other street corner. There are great cute nick-nack shops and great clothing and accessory stores too. You can literally find anything you are looking for on any corner you turn on.
Apartments a decently priced for living in a city, they are somewhat clean, the streets are dirty with trash, but for living in a high student area, I cannot complain.
