From the Perspective of a New Cooper-Young/Midtown Resident

Ahhh…Midtown living is the best!  From my window, I can see the beautiful leaves falling, people walking, running, pushing baby strollers, walking their dogs, and biking. I can also see a vegan cafe, yoga studio, kickboxing studio, a real estate office and a multitude of restaurants and shops.  As I sit here, I am thinking, “What a great place to live!” You wouldn’t think that there would be such a slice of heaven in the heart of Memphis, but Midtown is the heart of this city.  I moved to the Cooper-Young area over a year ago from North Mississippi. My family and friends couldn’t understand why I would want to move to Memphis. I told them, “I’m moving to Midtown, and it’s all about lifestyle. Cooper-Young/Midtown offers the healthy lifestyle and atmosphere I’m looking for.”

Often times our lives are so busy we don’t take the time to look around. I’m fortunate enough to work and live in my own neighborhood. As I walk through my neighborhood I can see some of the great architecture this area has to offer. Homes in this area vary in style, size and price.  There is truly something for everyone in Cooper-Young/Midtown. The best way to see your neighborhood is by walking, running or biking. By the way, all three are also healthy for you. I discover something I haven’t seen before every day.  

Just to name a few of the Cooper-Young/Midtown area attractions: the Cooper/Young Festival, Cooper Young Four Miler race, parks, churches, schools, farmers market, brewery, Friday night bingo, open mic nights, music by local musicians, fine dining, and a host of bars and restaurants. You can find everything you need within a five-mile radius, from excellent medical care to fine dining to doggie day care! And let’s not forget about Tiger Lane at the stadium. If you haven’t been by to see the Tiger Blue lights at night, you should. Better yet, attend a game!
