Phoenix’s Roosevelt Row named among hottest neighborhoods in US
PHOENIX — We all know it’s hot in Phoenix, but one neighborhood is hotter than the rest: Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix’s arts district was named among the hottest neighborhoods in the nation.
According to HotSpot Rentals, Roosevelt Row was ranked as the 24th-hottest neighborhood in the U.S.
The neighborhood was given top rankings for its walkability, lifestyle (which included bikeability, pet friendliness and number of outdoor activities) and — of course — weather.
Roosevelt Row cooled off in areas like budget, transit and entertainment, despite the fact that it is home to the city’s monthly First Friday event, in which local vendors and artists gather to bring the arts district to life.
The downtown Phoenix neighborhood scored just slightly above Midtown in Detroit, which suffered due to its transit and weather scores.
The top neighborhoods in the nation were The Mission in San Francisco, Bushwick in New York City, Jackson Square in San Francisco, Capitol Hill in Seattle and Sunset Park in New York.
The website used the reviews from popular websites, such as Yelp! and TripAdvisor, to calculate its rankings.
