I love living in this neighborhood because it's close to lots of cool bars and restaurants. My biggest gripe is the lack of public trash cans! There is always tons of trash in the street, but I suppose that's not entirely specific to this neighborhood, but the city in general.

It has its ups and downs. Diversity and easy access to other parts of the city are pluses. However, high crime, constant drug-dealing, and an unfortunately aggressive homeless population are minuses.
My girlfriend, a few friends and I moved here in April of 2018 and we all love it. Point Breeze is a low key neighborhood with a few coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. It's the perfect location with its easy access to center city and also the major highways. The neighborhood gets more beautiful by the month.
