Best Neighborhood of 2009: The Short North
For the second year in a row, The Short North has topped our reader’s poll as the best neighborhood of the year. Whether you call the area home, or just enjoy spending time as a visitor, the Short North has just about anything you could ask for. 2009 was a very transformational year for the neighborhood as well, as some businesses closed (Rosendales, Counter Culture, East Village, Four Winds, Norka Futon, Lux de Vie, etc) and others opened (Go Figure Consignment, Sandbox, Basil Thai, Level, Late Night Slice, Undone, Big Rock Little Rooster, Bakery Gingham, Funky & Functional, Impero Coffee, etc).
