I can't read the previous posts and not give a shoutout to the Northside (and that's the proper spelling!) Bought a small house off Aberg after seeing nothing but shitholes (for the price) in other areas. Turns out this is one sweeeeet location. Small houses, good people that take pride in what they have. Bus hub is across the street (although some of my neighbors hate it). Plenty of grocery/shopping options, and the Northside Farmer's Market ROCKS. Warner Park is up the road, and I live far enough away to be amused by Rhythm and Booms and Mallards, but I have neighbors closer that get real irritated by the noise at times. But Warner is a beautiful park and I invite, nay COMMAND, everyone to go there and experience it firsthand. Good choice of great restaurants within walking distance: La Bellitalia, Vientiene Palace, Smoky Jon's, even QQ is good for a buffet. And now that a certain troublesome liquor-slinging establishment has kindly been closing early, in the evenings it is city-serene, even with the occasional Oscar truck going past. I spend plenty of evenings in the back yard being thankful that I moved here. Sometimes I get a little wistful for downtown, then realize that I am no longer of an age where I would be amused by all-night house parties. To summarize: "Northside: don't dis it until you've tried it, cuz then you'll realize you are SO wrong..."
