I like the walkability of my neighborhood best. My favorite local businesses include the Alive and Kicking lobster shack, the Flour bakery and the Toscanini ice cream shop. For dinner, the India Pavilion and Little Donkey can't be beat!

Fresh air and quiet neighborhood. Good school distraction and less populated neighborhood. People are employed
