    "I've lived in this neighborhood and moved out because rent was cheaper further north. I'm now making my way back to the area bc I miss everything about it. The festivals, the night life, the restraints. Everything is within a 5 mile radius. Plus public transportation in this area is really good. no need for a car ."
