Just spent yesterday considering a move to condo living in The Gulch. It is certainly an interesting place, but nothing below $150K available. No affordable housing, as far as I can see. No grocery store. No green space. Average age probably in the late 20’s to 30’s. Few babies/children/etc. Could not find one piece of information on urban gardening. Schools zoned for The Gulch are abysmal. All in all, if you are single or DINKs, it is a swell (underline swell) place.As bright and shining as neighborhoods like the Gulch are, Nashville will never be a serious urban destination until it makes room for kids, good schools and more generational/income diversity in city neighborhoods.
