This leafy, bike-friendly district of mid-century bungalows and streets named after birds continues its upward rise – if you don’t already own here, buying is tough; but visiting is easy, and just gets better month by month. 2017 will bring two major new restaurants to the neighborhood – Bem Bom on Corrine and Kadence – joining and bolstering the already burgeoning food and drink scene. Shopping has also expanded recently, to the point that one-time newbies Park Ave CDs and East End Market now feel like legacy acts. And the neighborhood pioneer, Stardust Video & Coffee, rocks on, finding relevance with yet another new generation.
