This pocket area could not be better located renamed years ago to canal East the area has been transformed . Main Street renewal and the large luxury projects just off Main St have made this area a "go to" place to live . Just over the walking bridge to all the Glebe has to offer, Main St has a growing array of shops and coffee houses that include one of my favorites Café Qui Pense.
