What do you love about your neighborhood?

It's in the city but not as congested as other neighborhoods I've lived in. It changes every year for the better. There is a small but growing group of interested, committed neighbors who want to help our community. Join us if you haven't already! PPNA, GIPNA, JPNA, Six Corners, OIPA and other local groups are waiting for your input and interest. :-D
