East Nashville: Nashville, TN
Shorten Your Morning Commute
Urban areas on the rebound are just for urban pioneers, right? Don’t tell that to people moving into East Nashville. “We have fewer pioneers and more families moving permanently into the area,” says Josh Ellis, who lives in a remodeled 1905 Victorian with his wife, Stefanie, and their newborn son. After 10-plus years of a slow and steady rise, the neighborhood has managed to keep its eclectic, artsy vibe while welcoming a diverse mix of newcomers. “Of all the great things happening here, when I see young moms pushing strollers down the sidewalks, I know this place is back,” says local shop owner Debbie Goodwyn.
