neighborhoods: where we live

my neighborhood

Readers share

The three best things I like about my neighborhood are:

Newe Place Mililani/Ikaloa St.

Eugene S. Cabilao

1. Longest string of block parties from1970 to present.
2. Probably most four-year college graduate children in a neighborhood.
3. At least 98 percent of the block are retirees.

Makiki / Lower Tantalus

H.R.H. Fleur

1. The regularity, steadfast loyalty of TheBus (#15) up and down our hill.
2. T.G.I.F. musical sounds of fun being had by Roosevelt High School students.
3. Nightly cruise ships at sea by moonlight.


Kathy Campbell

1. It's 'da best! It's green! Always green and cool!
2. No one moves. My neighbors -- everyone knows everyone -- and I have been here over 34 years.
3. No stores. Our kids couldn't "run to the store."

Waipio Gentry

Theresa Y. Wee

1. "Friendly" -- know each other very well, kids growing up together, watch out for each other!
2. "Helpful" -- Do many projects together, share tools, work well with each other
3. "Fun" -- Frequent neighborhood potluck parties; our "Second Family."


Joseph P. Otto

1. Many inexpensive ethnic restaurants.
2. Branches of all the main island banks.
3. Peaceful, friendly and beautiful place.


Laura M. Fink

1. The tradewinds, the breezes keep our condo cool.
2. Proximity to UH, private schools, bus lines, very central and convenient.
3. Good mix of people, and really nice park and tennis courts.

Olomana in Kailua

Faith P. Evans

1. A true sense of caring in your neighborhood.
2. The longest ongoing community organization (40-plus years Olomana Community Association).
3. A children's and senior citizen's compatibility.

Top of Makakilo

Milton Dea

1. Great neighbors.
2. Nice cool tradewinds.
3. Top notch homeowners association.

Aiea Heights

Pat McIntyre

1. Quiet and peaceful with sounds of forest birds.
2. Always at least several degrees cooler than at the bottom of hill.
3. Very low density neighborhood with large lots and many trees.

And a bonus:

4. The people up here are great!

Aina Haina

Mark Terr

1. Quiet.
