My parents live in Manchester (I just moved out about a year ago) and the sections from Liverpool/Penns Ave/Sheffield St up (toward the city) are good, but once you go back further back it gets pretty shady.

West North Ave does have some wonderful homes, my parents are friends with a lot of the owners and the majority of them have been there since the area was terrible (1990s and before). My parents live in one of those restored homes, and while it's still a work in progress it is gorgeous. They don't normally have problems, but there are your occasional dumb teenagers who do stupid stuff just to do it.

That whole thing is pretty funny. There's already a restaurant there, Brix, but the City has been giving them grief over their oven. I think they just need an adjustment.

When I stayed at The Priory Hotel last month I did a walk around the neighborhood. I thought to myself what beautiful homes there were in the area. I especially loved the one that was for sale next to the hotel. The architecture is fabulous! There were some photos of the interior on Realtor and it's just as lovely.

I like the buildings on Ohio Street too and although some of them are vacant, many of the businesses are unique, and one of a kind. Reminds me of the old days when most people did their shopping in the neighborhood.
