Capitol Hill — 7.7/10 Rating (based on 6 neighborhood reviews)
Okay, I love Capitol Hill, but it is not everyone's cup of tea. There are beautiful churches, restaurants, and you're right next to Cheeseman Park. That being said, in this part of the city, there is a homelessness issue and that sometimes comes with certain things. I've never had a concern for my safety, but I know others have felt uncomfortable. If you're comfortable with city living and all that comes with it, this is a great place.

Some restaurants nearby and great access to the light rail station if you actually use it. As a woman, I wouldn't feel safe walking here around after dark.

Windsor at Broadway Station
I absolutely love living in Baker. It's a central location, close to Santa Fe and I25, and the proximity to Broadway is amazing. This is a great place to live if you're looking for a neighborhood with a historical, residential feel within the city.
