We visited Brookside the first Friday of May for the annual Brookside Art Festival. We shopped, ate lunch at Jalepeno's, and enjoyed the art, food, drinks, and people watching of the annual Brookside Art Festival.

I lived in Brookside temporarily and it is a cute little place. Bars and restaurants. There is a running trail that goes through. The surrounding area is gorgeous and an Uber ride to The Plaza/Westport and 39th street. Charlie Hoopers is always a great time

Brookside is a unique shopping and dining experience. I love the houses full of character. I sell Real Estate all over the city, and I choose Brookside for my home. Cosentinos is a superb Market. There are dozens of unique and wonderful stores.
