I find that defining the word "cool" is difficult due to its being so subjective. I will, however, be so bold as to endeavor to qualify a piece of real estate as cool no matter what the semantical issues may be. After much deliberation, wherein I weighed all sorts of attributes such as size, shape, interior, cost, and any seemingly superfluous pleasantries, I've decided to stick to what I know best, my neighborhood.
I walk past 23 Wadsworth Street
Here is a list of what is available within three blocks of 23 Wadsworth; Spirits of Allentown, KC's Fitness, Paw Prints, Nietzsche's, The Bend, Staples, Sample, Allen St. Hardware, Holly Farms, Antique Man, Lagniappes, Mulligan's Brick Bar, College Street Gallery, The Old Pink,Sp@ce 224, The Theatre of Youth, Sweet Tooth, Rust Belt Books, La Tee Da, Jim's SteakOut, Rick's Sportswear, and Gelsey's Fashions. This is all available before you even cross Elmwood! You add a fourth or fifth block, and the list runs on and on.
23 Wadsworth is a newly refurbished two-family home that includes a one-bedroom apartment and a studio apartment. It is suggested that the space would be perfect for accommodating an art studio or boutique. The building has off-street parking which comes as huge bonus considering the popularity of the locale. You can take a look at the specifics and a few interior shots at realtor.com.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone seeking the quiet suburban life, but if you are a true city dweller and can't live without your connection to all the great
