this neighborhood is great! A lot of things to do, very strong sense of community, but rapidly becoming a trap of yuppies and their families.

There's a lot to do-many places to eat, relax, go out for drinks, breweries...however rent and homes for sale are priced very high.
In my community, we have a local super market that I rate okay. It's tiny, doesn't have fresh food items, and the store is very crowded. The reason I rate it okay is because of the location, it's very close to my apartment. I also have to rate the local gas stations in this area okay as well. They have cheap prices, friendly workers, but they never have anything in stock.
