^ Exactly.

The quality of life is great though. My friend's place in Clifton Heights is walking distance from scores of bars, restaurants, a few parks, and the University. It's in prime location and runs cheaper than most areas in the city.

Clifton is a wonderful area not but a few miles from downtown and wonderful business district in the center. There are many beautiful homes and structures located in the area. The residents are from young college students who constantly walk the area all day to the nice residents who live in there wonderful beautiful old homes. As for these homes and them being money pits and hard to restore, most of the homes for sale would have been already bought way back in the 80's and all the painstaking restoration is mostly taken care of. If your going to buy one of those homes, chances are it has central air already and has been thoroughly taken care of. Besides the homes, I LOVE the shops and eateries up there. There are just so many to choose from. A week ago I was up at the Thai Express, a little restaurant where I just went in ordered pick my amount of spice (3) which be careful because 3 even had a little kick to it. But anywho, It has many places to choose from. Let me also talk about North Avondale, which has homes just as beautiful or even more beautiful. It generally has a bit more stock of older homes then Clifton but they are usually barely for sale since they remain very sought after. It doesn't have many shops or stores, let me be honest doesn't really have any but it is very close to Clifton and minutes from downtown. Also with North Avondale, it may have "Avondale" as its neighbor which is a sad beautiful crime ridden area but crimes there barely ever trickle over to North Avondale. It is safe and nice while at 9:00 pm you will see dog walkers and the elderly walking or on their way back to there beautiful old home. I would know this considering I'm sitting up in the bedroom of a North Avondale home. But anyways, Clifton is a great area and North Avondale is a great RESIDENTIAL area with beautiful homes.
