According to Forbes magazine, my neighborhood, or at least 5 blocks from my place, is the number 9 hippest neighborhood in the country.
Gritty up-and-comer Uptown made this list thanks to its
fast-paced growth. New restaurants, bars and coffee shops have been
opening weekly, and arguably the some of the best farmers markets in the
country take place here. The district was deemed the city's
entertainment center in the early 2000s and since then art galleries, an
improv theater, and several medical marijuana clubs have sprung up to
cater to the growing community.
As a first-time home-owner my first thought is, "I hope this brings up the value of my real estate."
