"Very cool and happening"

Up and coming area, lots of people come to hang out and the area is buzzing with the nightlife. Lots of professionals and couples living in the area, there are cool apartments in heritage buildings or warehouse conversions. The cost of these apartments are now very expensive, and the rent in the area is also very expensive as people want to live here.

There are the occasional beggars and weirdos outside the safeway/tab but that adds to the character. That said, the area is VERY safe. I have caught the tram to/from the city and it is safe at any time of day or night.

There are some stores on Smith St. that are vacant so once the area is developed this area will take off further. For now, there are different restaurant options: vegetarian, peking duck, vietnamese, Thai, etc. There are also numerous factory outlets at the northern end of Smith St. The CBD is also walking distance away as are the Fitzroy Gardens.

"Fantastically close to everything"

Smith street is a great place to eat and shop. heaps of factory outlet shops. You can pick up good bargains. Very multicultural suburb. Close distance to teh city and hospital. Public transport is great as there is tram that runs along there. Housing prices are a bit expensive. One of my favourite restaurants there is Copacabana Bar (Brazilian Restaurant). They have also got live shows capoeira dancers and samba
