This neighborhood may be named after circus promoter P.T. Barnum, but its fans aren't clowning around.
Says John D:
Used to live in highlands and moved to barnum a few years ago. lo and behold, my old next door neighbor purchased a house on the same street not long after. we both enjoy the non pretentious attitude, proximity to the city and an insanely affordable mortgage. with light rail a few blocks up and more and more people moving to the city, barnum's cockroaches become more charming every day. remember when people were buying bungalows in highlands for 80k a pop? i do.
