“Great Shopping”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Wonderful Shopping! Nice, clean area. I can't wait to go back again. I love had an especially great experience at West Elm. I was so glad to find a West Elm in our metro area.

“It's just a busy street”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

There's not much to see as a visitor, it's a city street. Unless you want to experience of sheer aggravation, don't waste you time.

“Street life as it should be”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

The many stores, the buzz and bustle of city center in a street that takes you back a century or two in looks. It's like NY's Soho but more sedate and fun. Just walk the street.
