Definitely the nicest neighborhood north of Downtown. A lot of restaurants and things to do. The Nashville Sounds our Baseball team have their stadium in Germantown. Its a neighborhood for young professionals. The public schools are poor so this wouldn't be a place to raise a family...

The Good: Hip, and quaint restaurants, coffeeshops, and other businesses in the area, close to downtown.

The Not So Good: Crime is still a problem in the community. I've lived at Werthan Lofts for over a year, and at one point multiple cars were getting broke into frequently, and the pool was monitored tightly for nonresidential invaders. For the money, I'm not sure I should have made this decision.

Although I'm less than 2 miles away from downtown, I don't know if I'd have the same problems living in the Gulch or somewhere comparable.
Love all of the things that there are to do in the area within walking distance. No matter what you are thinking of doing it is easy to find something to do around there, and the people that live in the area also seem to be very friendly.
