Home to a host of varying ethnicities. This is a very quaint and popular, the "East Village". This place ROCKS! Great local culture, restaurants, bars, shopping for unique items, and night-life.

Nice place to shop til you drop. Lots of little shops to check out. Plus there are several places eat and drink for the non-shoppers.

Organic Vegan Chocolate, Terrific food, Fun retro clothes, furniture, decor and goodies. Great shops for gifts for yourself or others and shop owners that make each visitor feel like a special guest. Check it out but wear your walking shoes.
