BEST NEIGHBORHOOD

Hyde Park

One thing the Tampa Bay area has is a number of lovely neighborhoods. Unfortunately, more and more of them are in developments featuring just two or three basic models — in an Edward Scissorhands-sort of scary way (hey, wasn't that movie shot around here?). But Hyde Park and runner-up Old Northeast in St. Pete offer slices of a different time. When homes weren't put together in two days, when streets were paved with brick and lined by shady trees. The homes are gorgeous, albeit way overpriced (not to mention some of the homes on Bayshore Boulevard bring a whole new meaning to the word ostentatious).
