This month, we at Roost are excited to roll out the first issue of ROOST Around Town -- our brand-new, monthly email update designed to help you explore the wonderful neighborhoods (including some hidden gems!) that make the Madison area such a unique and diverse place to call home. This month, ROOST Around Town features Sunset Village, on Madison's near-west side: Sunset Village signLongtime residents may remember when Sunset Village was a modest, quiet neighborhood tucked along University Ave., just west of UW Hospital.

Each issue of ROOST Around Town also includes a list of unique and interesting upcoming events, highlights from the ROOST blog, and market data for the featured neighborhood of the month. It's an easy way to stay connected and learn a little something new about your community. We love Madison, all that it has to offer, and its rich potential for even more. And we're very excited to be able to share some of that with you!

In addition, we're eager to hear from you. Love your neighborhood? Have an interesting piece of local history or trivia to share? Let us know -- and we may include it in an upcoming issue of ROOST Around Town!
