The Diamond Reviews

Overall, it's a good area for recent grads or young adults. It's close to several breweries and many restaurants, close to the Fan without being right smack in the city itself. It's a decent area, but could still use some cleaning-up.

There's not a big crime problem, and police are visible. However, there is limited street lighting at night.
