Thanks, so much le roi! I know what you mean about "Colonial Village." I had been calling it "Devon Park" but this was from realtor notes.
I settled on a cutesy cottage in what is called "downtown" but seems to me almost mid-town. Yes, the area is spotty, with good and sketchy stretches.
However, I met a neighbor who was very happy there and put in an offer.
Now I have new problems!! It seems the normal practice of realtors here to suddenly have "other offers" the very day you put in yours!
I'm going to post a new thread on that...thanks again, tho. I'm going to check out the area/s you mentioned, as back-up!
