    Highland Park Reviews

    Highland Park is a very welcoming neighborhood. The park itself is heavily used for recreation by many people. There is a small downtown area on Bryant Street with several good restaurants, a market and a pub. While there are some crime issues (especially cars being broken into), the area generally feels safe.
    Two blocks up from me there is a street of just restaurants and bars. Park Place Pub is where I usually go to drink, they have good burgers as well. Next to it is a pace with French cuisine called Park Bruge, which has amazing steamed mussels and French fries.
    There seem to be many professional buildings further up the way, but mostly around me are restaurants.
