I love that on a typical day I will see my neighbors running by with their dogs and/or strollers with their children, couples walking up the street to Red Bicycle to get a cup of coffee, or enjoying meal with the sweetest man in the world, Alphonso, at his restaurant, Big Al's Deli at the end of the block! We are a social community and I know the majority of my neighbors on a first name basis. We are also a front-porch neighborhood and I love that about us! All in all, we are a diverse urban community filled with all sorts of types of different families in the Capitol District of downtown Nashville!
