    "There’s a homeless outreach on Cordell ave and Wisconsin ave. You do have homeless walking the area asking for money, some are a bit crazy. The housing is stupid expensive, apartments and houses. The small businesses are dwindling due to big investors/ owners like Greenhill who don’t care about anything but money. That part is very sad. The rest of the neighborhood and the residents are wonderful and friendly. "

If you’re looking for a neighborhood where people hang out outside, chat on the sidewalks, etc., you’re better off elsewhere. "
