Our neighborhood attracts a mixture of families with children, seniors, and longtime residents, and the atmosphere is relaxed and congenial, with people who a friendly yet respect everyone's privacy. Days flow by in a regular rhythm as the kids swarm by on their bikes at 9 am headed to Boys' and Girls' Club day camp, then crowds amble over to the 10:45 am morning lecture by internationally famous speakers, e.g. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Chautauqua Lake calls for an afternoon of swimming and/or sailing, and the 8:15 pm evening program fills the historic Amphitheater with music from classical, to jazz, to rock.
