1 review

"Riverview Historic District"

Small, quiet neighborhood isolated by Norfolk zoo/park, LaFayette River, and Granby Street. Beautiful tree lined streets and an air of the turn of the century (1900) environment. Plenty of neighborhood activities such as ArtWalk and 4th of July parade and picnic. Front porch socializing with neighbors.

Interesting mix of residents: military with young-mid aged children; economically mid to upper-middle class; stable environment with many long-time residents, young professionals.

Pros Cons
  1. Eclectic social mix of neighbors
  2. Well maintained 100 yr old houses
  3. close to bases and downtown
  4. Norfolk zoo/park just a few minute's walk
  1. older houses, if not your style
  2. Narrow streets
