Valentine’s Day is here. For most, that probably doesn’t mean a whole lot. Nor does it to us, necessarily. It certainly doesn’t rank up there with Halloween or Thanksgiving, or any of the other important dates that translate to a day off work, for that matter. There is something to be said, though, about a day dedicated to love. And as such, we’re going to go with that theme and profess our love for the neighborhood.
That means you, FoPo. We love your grit. We love that you were affordable when we were seeking greener pastures. We love that brunch is just a short walk away, and that a cocktail can be had whenever and wherever (pretty much). We love that you have depth and character, and that you are rich with diversity. We (sort of) love that the scrap metal in our yards is never really safe, but that it just comes with the territory. We love to dream about you, and continue to dream for a day when we’ll love your restaurants and bike lanes and shops and movie theater. We love you, FoPo.
Now we want to hear from you, our readers and fellow Fopoians. What is it that you love about your neighborhood?
