Great little neighborhood, very walkable, beautiful landscaping and relatively safe. My neighbors are all very kind and we all watch out for each other.
There are many homes designated as Historical Landmarks in the area, and the interesting architecture and well kept properties make walking my dogs a joy. Many retro and interesting rentals available in the area, and there are plenty of bars, restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, and cool retail places within walking distance, as well as Wright Park, which is absolutely gorgeous.

Home prices are outrages. Neighbors are in your business. I feel their elitist attitude leads them to believe everyone needs to be living , acting within their standards. God forbid your not a family with a stay at home mom, book club, a Labradoodle and lobbying against the school district to change the laws to better suit your entitled, spoiled snowflake child... Other than that tacoma is great!
Compared to Seattle’s best neighborhoods the NorthEnd of Tacoma is a gem. Compared with the Southend of Tacoma it’s a whole lot safer.
The Proctor district , Pt Defiance Park and Point Ruston makes it a great place to live.
