In Squier Park neighborhood, “we do our best to get to know each other”
While folks in the suburbs sometimes complain about feeling isolated from neighbors, those who live in urban neighborhoods like Midtown’s Squier Park often feel they are truly living in an urban village. According to Squier Park Neighborhood Association President John Pajor, “We do our best to get to know each other.” Pajor says he, his wife and three children have relished living in an urban core neighborhood that is east of Troost, has been integrated for decades, and provides them with a great “sense of place.” He also loves the fact that he can bike to his job downtown or take the bus if the weather is bad.
“No one knows Squier Park,” but homes tour may raise profile
The biggest problem with Squier Park, according to the neighborhood’s vice president Johnathon Bish, is that “no one knows Squier Park.” But the neighborhood is offering a chance to get to know it – inside and out – when it hosts its third homes tour this weekend.
