Dormont. It’s a first-ring suburb of Pittsburgh, on the light rail line. It has two commercial strips, Potomac and West Liberty Ave. The entire borough is .76 sq miles, so no address is too far from the businesses or rail.

East Michigan Avenue in Lansing MI comes to mind as another one.

I'd say the North Beach area of Miami Beach fits this pretty well.

Anyway, other neighborhoods that fit this thread include:

Center Square, Albany, NY - Many people commonly call this downtown Albany. It's very pedestrian friendly. I just wish there was a supermarket closer.

New Scotland, Albany, NY - Lived in this neighborhood for many years. Great if you like to walk and cycle. Pizzerias, delis, post office, banks, and more within walking distance. Its neighbor, Pine Hills is also great and is closer to the Price Chopper. Lots of families in this neighborhood.

Schenectady, NY - While this city isn't known for being the safest, I've found the area between Nott and Union in between Ellis Hospital and the High School are extremely safe, quiet, and walkable. Puts you right on the border with Niskayuna which is very safe and very family friendly.

Scotia, NY - Just across the river from Schenectady is Scotia. Small, friendly community with a very walkable strip that's easy to walk to from many of the neighborhoods. I personally think this is the best kept secret in the Capital Region. Scotia's known for being safe. All along Mohawk Ave you have everything you need: barbershops, jewelry stores, banks, gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, and more.
I'm sorry, I did a WTH? when you suggested the weather wasn't great in Lakewood/Cleveland and went on to suggest the Albany NY area.
