Close to medical area and many colleges too.
Street parking. Guests usually can find a street parking spot within a couple of houses away from the rental. On occasion, a guest might have to park further down the street or around the corner. No meters so can park on street as long as you like. Great location whether you choose to use public transportation or Uber/Lyft, or use your own car, or a combination of these.
