Bounded on three sides by water and on the fourth by a bike bath and East Washington Avenue, this part of town is at the same time sedate and festive. It is walkable, rich in its appreciation of quirky gusto, and colors its politics deep blue. Situated along the north shore of Lake Monona between the Yahara River and Starkweather Creek, this is a diverse yet cohesive neighborhood that invests in its quality of life. A little over 20 years ago, its residents rallied to transform what was then a seedy porn house into the Barrymore Theater, restoring it to its former glory and establishing it as the beating cultural heart of Madison's east side. (Partial article from Isthmus Newspaper: Schenk-Atwood-Starkweather-Yahara: The soul of Madison by David Medaris, May 18, 2008) Schenk-Atwood-Starkweather-Yahara Neighborhood has a historic feel. Single-family homes to three-flats are intertwine in the fabric of the neighborhood. As you stroll down the street, you will see the front porch style neighborhood: people sitting on their porches welcoming you to chat about life in the neighborhood and beyond. The diverse mix of residents: from the traditional professional to the creative musician, the family makeup that spans ages, races, incomes, and orientation, as well as the vast interest in local to worldly advocacy makes this neighborhood a highly desirable place to live. The charitable spirit is high with the neighborhood supporting, through financial and volunteer time, the Goodman Community Center that serves are youth and seniors. </td> </tr> <tr> <td class="col1">Neighborhood Boundaries:</td> <td>East Washington Avenue on the north; East Branch of Starkweather Creek on the east; Lake Monona on the south; Yahara River on the west</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="col1"><a href="http://www.cityofmadison.com/ni" target="_blank">Neighborhood Statistics Indicators:</a></td> <td>The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level.
