"Cool Vibe, Neighborhood Needs Some Work"
This is a great place for music buffs to visit – especially those of a jazz inclination, as many jazz greats have called this neighborhood home, and the remnants of the jazz-infused decade of the forties is still apparent here. The neighborhood has known problems with crime in the past (it was a big deal in the eighties), but during recent years many people starting moving into the neighborhood (as rents went up elsewhere in the city), leaving it a bit overpopulated. Still, the neighborhood struggles on to preserve its own history – perhaps tourists shouldn’t visit here after dark, especially if they don’t really know where they’re going. For people who are thinking of moving in, another thing to be aware of is the fact that the neighborhood is a good train ride into the city.
