The Northwest Neighborhood consists entirely of single-family homes and is characterized by well-kept, mature housing units. This neighborhood is primarily owner-occupied, and is made up by a diverse population of mostly families, middle-aged residents and retirees. Some say that there is a “country within the city” type feeling to this area.
Northwest is home to two elementary schools, one of which is Our Lady of Lourdes private school, and the other Ben Franklin. There are three residential care homes and a few small businesses within the neighborhood.
