From The Dispatch:
New area commission works to preserve neighborhood’s varied character
By Sherri Williams
Sidewalk cafes, edgy boutiques and independent shops mix with chain stores and fast-food restaurants in the Fifth by Northwest neighborhood. The side streets are lined with older homes and duplexes mixed with new condominiums such as the Metropolitan and Broadview Mews on 3rd Avenue. The variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance is drawing more residents and developers to the area.
