CITY LIFE: MEET YOUR NEIGHBORS

Book Chrobak
Old Brooklyn

“I love city living because of the community feel and the abundance of neighborhood amenities.  I enjoy being so close to my neighbors, friends and recreational outlets.  Our family chose to live in the city and we appreciate being connected to so many others that also value city living – whether they are young professionals, growing families, or retirees.  We love how Old Brooklyn’s cultural diversity contributes to our thriving neighborhood and helps foster a better place to live.”


Ashly Little
Larchmere/Fairhill

“I have been a resident of the Larchmere/Fairhill area for all of my life. It has been a wonderful 33 years and I cannot say anything bad about this area. My father and mother continue to reside in the neighborhood and have been here since 1985. I enjoy the quiet neighborhood; however, the uprising of festivals is an additional delight. Shaker Square continues to be an accessible hub of dining, shopping and cinema and Larchmere continues to excel with eclectic stores and restaurants. All are within walking distance for my family and me. The neighborhood offers a variety of housing options and is close to University Circle, major hospitals, and neighboring suburbs. This community is something I have grown to love and encourage everyone to explore the area as it has so much to offer and continues to grow and improve.”
