One of my favorite neighborhoods (actually several) are those that run between pretty much the full length of Quinpool and Chebucto. Excepting the eastern end closest to Windsor St, which is full of rentals and students, the other streets are great -- Kline, Beech, Elm, Poplar, and once past Connaught Avenue, that lovely neighborhood with Newton Ave and First through Fourth (? I think) Sts., and then the ones closest to the Armdale Rotary, like Quinn, Philip, etc. Great place to live.
