Sylvan Park in demand, says City Paper

Kind words for the neighborhood from today's issue of the City Paper (the City Homes section does not appear to be online):
They all want to live in Sylvan Park. You know a neighborhood is considered prime when folks who follow local residential trends casually describe it as "overrated" -- yet, in reality, would shave their heads like Britney Spears for a chance to live there. Bring out the shears for Sylvan Park.

Yes, many of the area's homes are pricey -- especially the shoeboxes that garner about $300 a foot -- and the buzz that surrounded SP six years ago has calmed a bit. But this one-time working class enclave on the city's upscale west side remains one of the city's most desirable old-school residential districts.
I am proud to say that I have a full head of hair and that I call Sylvan Park home. I hope you are, too, especially on the latter part. :)
