I'd take issue with the transit comment (as someone who is also an urbanist and transit nerd). Three to four bus lines pass through the heart of the Village, and my old route (I used to take the 9 before they riffed it), took me straight to Five Points (a four-block walk to my office). And the duration was only slightly longer in rush-hour traffic, a trade-off I willingly made for the ability to spend the ride reading. As for "best neighborhood", well, we all know that's going to be subjuective to the point of making this survey silly. But I'd not-so-humbly submit that the EAV's combo of affordable housing, schooling options, culture/nightlife, proximity to transit AND roads, access to the Downtown core, close-knittedness of community, diversity (in race, lifestyle, whatever), and general livability makes it one of the best places to live in the metro area.
