The neighborhood is a combination of new/old buildings with the new buildings fitting in nicely. There's an indoor market with bakery goods and sandwiches along with meat/veggies/fruit.

Stopped by initially to meet the rover.com (doggy day care host) for our visit to the Harley Davidson museum. Once in the area we realized what a jewel it was. Lots of shops; lots of restaurants,any with outside seating, and the public market which is worth the stop by itself.
