I've always found Durkeeville fascinating. One time in the 80s, my school bus took a detour and we drove past Small stadium. I was surprised to see it and intrigued. There are great houses and streets in the neighborhood and it's one of those relatively unknown pockets of Jacksonville. It's definitely got a walkable character to it and it feels like an older city neighborhood to me.
