dakota“I moved to Olde Towne East by chance. Over the past few years, I have enjoyed being so close to local restaurants Including The Tavern and Yellow Brick Pizza. And I love being so close to Franklin Park Conservatory! Olde Towne East is changing for the better, and it helps that I know all my neighbors. ” –Dakota Green
