Peaceful · Traditional · Residential
Head over to West Austin, and you will find the Tarrytown neighborhood, a place which may look quaint and traditional, but is actually occupied by individuals with a modern perspective. Austinites recognize Tarrytown for its animal friendly culture.
In fact, in the 1990s, a controversy erupted when the new owner of Tarrytown Shopping Center banned the sale of animal products, or products deemed harmful to animals. All vegan queso aside though, this neighborhood is ideal for families or people looking to raise one — its tree-lined streets, plentiful sidewalks, and multiple caution signs reminding drivers not to exceed the speed limit, make it the kind of place where you can teach your child to ride their very first bike (which, of course, is more environmentally responsible than any gas guzzler).
