This community is open minded and supportive of alternative lifestyles and individualism. The neighborhood is known as 'the berkeley of the east'. Known for its numerous mature trees creating a serene feeling of living in the woods. It's quiet, family friendly and offers a wide variety of restaurants, shops and a yoga center.
