It's a rather mixed neighborhood that seems to be trending upwards but you don't have to travel far to see depressed pockets on the area. Could use a few more places to socialize but the ones that do are fairly affordable and have a good assortment of creative's, young professionals, and business people. Another plus is its relatively close distance to downtown Columbus and Bexley.

Olde Towne East is a very welcoming niche in Columbus. It has plenty of independent shops and definitely feels like a community. It may not seem like the nicest or most up-and-coming part of town, but it is incredibly unique (in a good way), and has a personality all its own. OTE has increased in popularity recently, it seems, with a lot of condos, apartments, and houses being renovated to help improve the overall quality of the neighborhood and appeal to young adults and young families. Overall, a great place to live with great local businesses and hangouts, and in general filled with friendly people who enjoy the community and want to see it thrive.
Olde town east is a very nice neighborhood that is being fixed up and remodeled. The housing market has almost tripped its values since I have moved here 6 years ago. I highly recommend this area because of location and that it's close to downtown!
