Fall Creek — 8.2/10 Rating (based on 5 neighborhood reviews)
Fall Creek is a beautiful residential neighborhood right next to Ithaca Commons (aka "downtown") the center of the commercial city. It is fully flat between the commons, downtown and the lake. The houses are old and lovely, on pretty, tree-lined streets. The neighborhood is a mix of long-time residents, young families, and graduate students.

Quiet, largely families and grad students. Close enough to bus routes to get places but not so close that it's loud. Rent is also very affordable. Learn how to use the bus system and your life will be more regular.
