What can be said for one Arden can be said for all. First, know this: As the oldest single-tax community in the country, you own your house but not the property it sits on, an idea that appeals to those of a particular socio-political stripe. Named after the magical forest of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” the heavily wooded area is chock-a-block with resident artists, so if you’re in with the in crowd, there’s no shortage of creative exchange. The Arden Gild Hall provides plenty of lively programming, and the annual community fair is a 100-year-plus tradition. Bonus points for the neighborhood’s iconic New Candlelight Theatre.
