Good residential section; pride of ownership; near business district; homes are kept
in good repair. Sale prices are advancing. Empl oyment among people in this area
good. One of the older residential sections but demand is still good. Unable to
make finer breakdown of this ar ea because of mixture of cheaper homes side by side
with higher priced proper ties.
