Other community news sites have already reported that their neighborhoods were noted by HGTV’s Frontdoor.com as among Richmond’s 5 great neighborhoods. The Fan–of course!–is on the list, too. Here’s the whole thing. The quick and dirty:
The Fan is authentic “old urbanism” and is home to students, young families and empty nesters. Artistic abandon and traditional conservatism exist here in a happy balance.
This echoes the opinion of Richmonders themselves–according to Richmond Magazine’s annual Best and Worst edition where the Fan was voted Most neighborly Neighborhood (as well as Best Boomer Community).
