It is mostly a college neighborhood full of OSU students. Some apartments can be in need of an update, they are usually reasonably priced though. It is one of the quieter areas around campus, but activities can still be found nearby on High Street and at the park/ running and biking trail.

I enjoy access to the Olentangy Trail which is ideal for strolling and cycling.
I enjoy the variety of the local businesses.
This neighborhood is very walkable, which is ideal for people who enjoy an active lifestyle.
There's a lot of diversity. However, public safety needs to be better implemented. The area contains a lot of students with a lot of preventable crime.
