Whittier

Whittier’s residential feel sets the historic district apart. Many of the area’s beautifully crafted brick homes were originally built for blue-collar workers in the late 1800s. Strong walking and biking scores, plus the nearby 30th and Downing light rail station, means residents get the best of both worlds: a community-oriented neighborhood that’s close enough to the city to benefit from all of the best urban conveniences.
