I love Upper Lawrenceville. I lived in Central Lawrenceville for 8 years but when I was ready to buy a house I could no longer afford it. Now when I walk around I appreciate that Upper Lawrenceville still has some of the character and affordability that Lower and Central Lawrenceville are losing.

It's a little quieter here than Lower or Central (or Bloomfield/Shadyside, etc) but it has the feel of a village within walking/bus distance to everything. If we could get some kind of bike infrastructure up here I'd rate it 5 stars.

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.
