Crime is low, I believe. The school system is exceptional and unique with the "controlled choice" policies that foster diversity. Lots of quirky and trendy places to eat and hangout.

Lots of young adults because of all the colleges (which is a good thing since I'm also a young adult). Also the style is very historic with all the brick.
