I spent an afternoon looking at Hilltop through a photographer's eyes. Hilltop and Crestmoor feel different than the surrounding areas. The lots are larger, the Crestmoor area is mostly a mixture of mid-century architecture and modern construction on lots where the old house was removed. Streets in the area are rarely straight through which means reduced speeds and kids playing in front yards or on the street. We see huge old trees and a couple of lovely parks. Further West, Hilltop is has more gothic style architecture, but the curved streets and lovely flowered parkways persist. The neighborhood has less embedded retail, more surrounded by pockets of cute places on Holly and 8th Avenue. There is a welcoming feel to all the little retail areas, an old-timey feel, even in the newer spaces.
