A great neighborhood to safely explore - lots of boutiques, eateries and interesting architecture. How can you go wrong with coffee shops, bookstores, high-end spirits and restaurants - all locally-owned?

This a great place to hang out. I have 3 kids and we are able to walk up and down Frankfort Ave grab something to eat and have a great time. Or you can dress up and have a romantic date with your loved. I recommend you check it out.
