Uptown is a great, walkable, and safe neighborhood. Along with options for food, exercise, entertainment, and shopping, Uptown also provides a comfortable environment with well planned Urban design. There are grocery stores, convenience stores, schools, movie theaters, music venues and more. This neighborhood generally attracts younger populations that enjoy nights on the town. Whether you are in the walkable streets of State Thomas, the fun Quadrangle, or the buzzing West Village, Uptown is a great place to be.
I would give it five stars but it can be very noisy during weekends specially at nighttime. However, this is nothing that earplugs can't fix. Another downside is that is when they do special bar-hopping event because a lot of you people is running up and down the street half drunk so, you have to be careful when you are driving.
Other than that living in uptown is very nice. There are many places that you can walk to if you want to eat, and there is also the trolley. It runes until late and you can hop on for free and it takes you all the way to Klye Warren park and the Museum District and on to the other side of uptown to the Shops at Elm St.
