This very popular and trendy area is just north of downtown. Both areas have seen a resurgence in recent years, with the original architecture being one of the highlights. The Short North Arts District offers some of the city’s finest dining, art galleries and Goodale Park. Housing options include condos, lofts, apartments, townhouses and single-family homes. Although parking can be a challenge, most residents don’t seem to mind in exchange for proximity to downtown, restaurants, bars and public transportation.
