Great place to live. Safe neighborhood with excellent restaurants, parks, shopping, and cultural attractions. Extremely dense and walkable neighborhood with outstanding access to public transportation.
The weather in the spring is probably the nicest. It is not too hot nor too cold. The weather feels nice most of that time. In the summer, the weather is extremely hot and it makes having to walk almost unbearable. The fall weather is nice at first. You can wear long sleeves and be comfortable. But once it starts getting colder it is not as pleasant. In the winter, it is horrible especially when there is snow on the ground. It is extremely difficult to walk through the streets because of snow being everywhere along with people and freezing wind.
The housing in this area is pretty great. The quality of the housing is overall excellent. The only thing is sometimes people leave things a little bit dirty and no one cleans them. There are rarely any abandoned properties in this area. Most place are lively and have people. The cost of housing although, is sort of expensive. I wish the housing in this area was not so expensive.
