I received an email earlier this week from a Kitsilano.ca reader that is doing some reserch on our neighbourhood before moving. Smart idea.
And if you’re moving to Kits, where better to get some feedback than Kitsilano.ca. Have a read:
My husband and I are moving to Vancouver in July and considering two apartments to rent – one is on West 4th and one is on West Broadway; both are between Trafalgar & Yew.
As a Kits expert, do you have any thoughts on which is a better residential location?… or is it simply a matter of personal preference?
We’ve been to Vancouer once and spent enough time in Kits to know what we want to live there, but I’m having a hard time deciding between the two apartments. The one on Broadway is a little larger but the 4th Ave location (with shops, cafes, closer to beach, etc) might be a bit more attractive.
I replied that they really couldn’t go wrong but that there are a lot of factors to consider including commuting options and lifestyle. She added this to the mix:
We love all things outdoors so being closer to the beach is attractive. I work from home and my husband will be at Vancouver General, so Broadway might be a little more convenient w/ the bus line, but 4th doesn’t look that far either.
Always in search of an interesting blog post, I suggested that we let our readers help her decide and she’s eager to hear what the natives think.
So, comment below and let her know your opinions on West 4th Avenue versus West Broadway.
