On page 5 you'll find a reference to my neighborhood, Kenwood. Because so many artists reside in the neighborhood, Kenwood Board Members and residents are working with the city toward establising a special residential status called an "Artist Enclave". This would allow artists some limited commercial use of their property for teaching, etc. Signage also would be permitted. What page 5 of New York Magazine doesn't mention is that even though the homes tend to be small ... Kenwood has the largest concentration of bungalows in the state of Florida and a good many of them are charming.

In 2005, Cottage Living magazine named Kenwood one of the five best cottage communities in the country. But it wasn't always like that. In 1990, a run-down Kenwood began to turn the corner when a group of hard core restorers ... and partiers ... brought the community back to life through hard work and porch parties ... a tradition that continues today.
