Not really, not anymore. At one time we were a pleasant, quiet, unique neighborhood where it was safe to walk, to drive, to live one's life. For some reason we have become the new "hot spot" for developers and millenials who have moved in and are "changing" this neighborhood they wanted to live in to suit their needs. Pleasant single family homes are being torn down and replaced with multi-family condominiums. Quiet streets designed for half a dozen cars now handle hundreds of cars a day. It is no longer safe to walk to the grocery store, the pharmacy or the park without dodging cars running red lights and passing on the shoulder. The development has trippled property taxes making it increasingly difficult to live here for those on fixed incomes. The consensus of our new population seems to be it is time for us to move on and make way for them. People who have lived here for 50+ years are being forced out.
