Affordable. Mainly pre-war walk-ups, but there are a few newer luxury high-rise buildings.
A handful of modern luxury high-rises have sprung up in recent years, but most apartments are pre-war walk-ups. As the neighborhood has gotten more popular in recent years prices have increased. Still, there are plenty of affordable options here relative to other neighborhoods downtown.
