There are so many shops there that you need a full day or several days to really see them all. We found so much stuff.

The Frankfort Avenue corridor has really grown over the years. Currently you can find almost any type of food and drink you would desire. It is busy and traffic can be heavy. Parking is at a premium with much more demand than supply. We usually take a Lyft to avoid the parking puzzle. Lots of shops to visit. All in... More

we had a nice stroll in the evening looking at shops and having a drink in a bar/restaurant and whether you want quiet or busy you will find something there.

Currently this place is a real mess. The roads are torn up and there are detours all over. I didn't see enough shops to make it worth going and fighting the progress.

I've always loved Frankfort Avenue, so many local stores to choose from. If you want something unique check out Frankfort Avenue shops. Frankfort Ave also has restaurants that are not mass chain ones. Clifton Pizza is good. Don't forget F.A.T Friday which is the final Friday each month which trolleys run from 6-10pm.

This is a clean, tree lined neighborhood. There are a few shops and restaurants, but they are spaced pretty far apart. You may want to drive, park, walk a little and repeat unless you are looking for a quite walk. This is not a place to walk 4 steps and see a new store - it's much more space out... More
