  1. Love it. Seems like a steal, too, for 2,200 sq ft and a tasteful restoration.

  2. I would love for you to go into detail about the word “transitioning,” especially when I’ve read about gang violence there. Are there parts that are safer? What kinds of urban amenities does it have (art movie theaters? coffee shops? fine dining?). What kind of public transportation? Tell us more! Definitely an interesting spot, but would love to shed light on its complications!

  3. Hi Lisa….I will be explaining all of that very soon! I will keep all of your suggestions in mind! Thanks!
