I love the diversity of our neighborhood, and the proximity to restaurants and nightlife. There are pocket parks, beautiful old trees, and an interesting mixture of architectural styles.

I love the elementary school, it's very old and historic. The teachers and family's are great. The only thing I'd change is parking lol.. overall riverside is a great place, historic and quiet. I live living here.
Despite a few issues, its a beautiful neighborhood with relatively low crime, surrounded by restaurants, parks, churches, and the river.
