Can people list their unique neighborhoods that are walkable to shops, markets, stores, pubs, etc... where people can get a house or rowhouse, have a small backyard, and still just walk 4-5 blocks to rail or transit that can take you downtown?

Just curious what places are like this out there, i'm sure there is a lot...

Are there any cities out there that don't have multiple neighborhoods like this? I can think of far too many to list in every city I've ever lived in. In some places the closer in, safe walkable neighborhoods with good public transit and good schools are often really expensive, though. Neighborhoods where I've lived that fit your description include South Pasadena in CA, Woodley Park in DC, Uptown in Minneapolis, Trolley Square in Delaware, Hollywood in CA, and the Richmond district in SF. All of those areas have at least some row house or single family homes options with some yard space (as well as a lot of apartment options)

Mm Woodley Park and Cleveland Park in DC fit that description. Pretty big homes, suburban-looking really, but a short walk to the main drag with restaurants, a few shops and bars, and access to the Metro.

In Boston it would be far easier to list neighborhoods that don't meet this description. And it would be a pretty small list.
