This is a fun part of town with lots to do. Great restaurants, shops, bars and music venues are everywhere. Most of the houses are apartment buildings of moderate size and there is a large Asian population that has been living in this part of town for years. Housing prices are moderate and although it is a bustling neighborhood during the day, you will not be kept up by noise at night. It is also fairly safe and neither particularly clean nor particularly dirty. There is a good cross section of hipster, yuppy, and everything in between. This is a great neighborhood to live in if you are young.
