The Fan Reviews
I've only been living in The Fan for a few months now but overall I LOVE IT! What I like most about The Fan is the ability to walk everywhere, especially to all my favorite restaurants! On the weekends it can be noisy, but what do you expect since there are lots of bars and restaurants around. I think The Fan could be improved with better public transportation and also resources set out to help homeless people. If you were new to Richmond and looking for a place to live, I would definitely recommend it to anyone!
I visit the fan weekly for work purposes. I lived nearby and used to visit it for recreational purposes years ago, so I can make present day comparisons. What I like that it maintains its value across the years. The Apartments and homes and restaurants are still there and are doing well in structure and in business. Everyone can find a restaurant according to their tastes. Some specialize in healthy foods, some in grills, some in specialty sandwiches, and of pizza. Or you can find restaurants with all included. There are so many small finds in businesses on just about every corner. The young are infatuated, the older can visit their favorite places. You'll even see families out walking. There are private, local schools and charter public schools. I become more fascinated every time I visit.
Family oriented, nice neighbors and quite. Also young college students. Lots of bars and restaurants for you and your friends to socialize at.
