Historic Third Ward Reviews

I temporarily moved here 3 months ago to attend MIAD and I instantly fell in love with the buildings and the plants the overall feel of the area. I love the old brick buildings. The nightlife here is great but only if you're looking for something on the tame side. We have plenty of classy bars and several casual (but expensive!) restaurants.

I like living here, The night life is great. The crime could be a lot less and the homelessness could be helped more. But I like living here.
