On today's Making a Neighborhood blog, we're talking to Allison D'Aurizio of My Grandmother's Pie. This Springfield resident has been creating delectable baked goods since 2009, when her and her husband were liivng in South Carolina. Named after her grandmother, who had the biggest influence in Allison's life (and also made a legendary pecan pie), My Grandmother's Pie has been a Jacksonville favorite since 2013.
We think one of the best ways to get to know a neighborhood is to meet the people who live, work, and play in that area. We're excited to be starting a new series on the Bloom Realty blog - Making a Neighborhood.

We're excited to kick off our Making a Neighborhood blog series with Town Beer Co., a new Murray Hill craft beer shop and tasting room that is quickly becoming one of our favorite spots in town. Town Beer Co. features all local taps (changed frequently to ensure each local brewery gets highlighted week after week), as well as a wide selection of packaged products from breweries in Florida. Enjoy the interview with Town Beer Co. co-owner Priya Moldovan!
Congratulations on the decision to buy a home in the Riverside Avondale historic district of Jacksonville! You’ve made a great choice to live in such a diverse neighborhood.
At Bloom Realty, we love Jacksonville's historic neighborhoods, and all of the features that make them a unique place to live. The Riverside, Avondale, Riverside Annex, and Springfield neighborhoods are on the National Register of Historic Places; and San Marco and Murray Hill neighborhoods are historic, but not on the National Register. All of these areas lend themselves to the vibrancy of Jacksonville community, and we've complied a list of reasons to live in these neighborhoods.
