We are moving there in April, we have been in the burbs for 15 years, tired we are city people. We have two kids, one in middle and will be in 9th next year and one in 4th. We want to live close to downtown. We have lived in the burbs and frankly it is so boring now. Time for a change, so here is what we are looking for, we are going to rent for a year atleast can go to 1800.00 safe neighborhood, shopping and cafes, park and decent schools. ALL schools have issues wether it is burbs where the kids can have there own set of issues or in the city, my kids prefer diversity. Where close to downtown is a good place to start. I know of Washington Park, any others? Commute is not an issue. We like older homes and tree lined streets if we can get them. Thanks

If you like tree lined streets, you would love living in one of the eastside neighborhoods surrounding the 6th, 7th, 17th and Monaco Parkways. Each of the parkways are lined with gorgeous trees above a park dividing the opposite lanes of traffic. They make for great walking. The nearby neighborhoods are Congress Park, Hilltop, Mayfair, Montclair, South Park Hill. South Park Hill and Congress Park has the cafes and shopping options you may desire, while Mayfair and Montclair are more affordable.

In addition to Washington Park and all of the above recommendations also check out Platt Park and Highlands.

Definitely. East End is where you want to be. City Park area is nice.
