The Fan

Readers' Pick

Second Place: Church Hill

Third Place: The Museum District

Have a need? Any need at all? Well, there's probably somewhere in the Fan where you can have it sated — within walking distance. It's that level of convenience that makes Richmond's most highly populated neighborhood such a desirable location for the strange brew of constituencies that call it home. Old money mingles with college students. Single professionals live next door to single families. It's all very democratic. It's also what makes some of the residents so very damn insufferable. You know that person. If you've committed a significant amount of time and brainpower to the controversy over lighted signs at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, or refuse to venture outside the confines of the Boulevard and Belvidere, then you probably are that person.
