Meet your new neighbors, The Sullivans of 1412 Silver Street!
SPAR: Tell us a little about yourselves!
KS: We are Kristen and Neil Sullivan and we have a 7-month-old son named Brady and a cat named Milo. Neil is a naval flight officer stationed at NAS Jacksonville and works as an instructor for the P-8. I just recently left the Navy after 6.5 years of service and I am currently earning my master’s degree in marketing from Northwestern University. We enjoy playing tennis, hosting dinner parties, exploring the local area, and playing board games. Neil’s hobbies include watching sports (Patriots and Red Sox), playing water polo, and working out. My interests are photography, interior design, and thrifting.
SPAR: When did you move to Springfield?
KS: We just recently moved into our beautiful red craftsman on February 20th. We’re still getting settled but excited to get to know the area!
SPAR: What drew you to this neighborhood?
KS: We decided to buy a house in Springfield after speaking to some of the neighbors. Their glowing reviews really sealed the deal for us. We love how friendly everyone is and the strong sense of community. We are also looking forward to attending the many events scheduled throughout the year. Springfield seems like a wonderful up-and-coming Neighborhood to raise a family.
SPAR: What neighborhood or SPAR event are you most excited about?
The events we’re looking forward to the most are PorchFest and the 4th of July baseball game. We plan on attending as many events as we can!
SPAR: We know you are very new to the ‘hood, but talk a little about your favorite SPR activities so far!
KS: We haven’t had much time to explore the neighborhood. However, we did get to try some of the delicious beers at Hyperion Brewery and plan to make it a regular stop. We’re also looking forward to trying out the local restaurants we keep hearing so much about!
SPAR: Is there anything you would like to add?
KS: We’re a young couple that loves to entertain and have fun. We can’t wait to get involved with the community and meet some amazing people!
