“NO LONGER THE JEWISH NEIGHBORHOOD”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We visited to area upon recommendation believing the area to be a Jewish community; this is no longer the case. Very disappointed. There is nothing but pizza joints and Asian foods door to door. The massage envy facility is okay but over all the town was disappointing. The original synagogue's and many of the original houses are very nice. Only one Jewish restaurant and one Jewish grocery were left.

“thriving international neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

While the area is still a Jewish neighborhood, it is intermingled with Asian, Italian, Mediterranean, etc. Shops and restaurants of many nationalities are interspersed throughout. It is a fun place to walk or drive by.

“Best town for strolling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

With broad sidewalks and a busy, interesting main street (Forbes Avenue) full of intriguing local shops, this is a Saturday destination for us.
