We're a family of four at the moment with two young boys (3 and 1.5) and are expecting a little girl in January 2011. My husband is from Italy and loves the area so much he says he'll never leave (I'm trying to convince HIM to sabbatical in Europe). The children love the area with neighborhood parks, gym, library, coffee shops. The neighborhood is very spirited often attracting kids from all over the city at Fourth of July, Halloween and Christmas to see the lights and the decorations. On the 4th of July, there is also the famous Red, White and Blue parade. The Rock and Roll Half Marathon is also an international attraction, racing in front of our house every Fall.
