Stephanie Bikcen is a public school teacher who has lived on The Avenues nearly two years.
How would you describe The Avenues to someone who’d never been there?
It has a really good neighborhood feel to it. Safe, historic, a wide variety of different houses and styles.
What made you decide to live there?
Never miss a local story.
It was one of the less expensive options. And it was convenient to where I work.
Do you know your neighbors?
I do know my neighbors. One’s an older gentleman and an older couple, and then we’ve got some younger people down the road. Different stages of family life.
What are three “hidden gems” you’ve uncovered in Cayce?
It may not be hidden, but I love the Riverwalk.
Tony’s Pizza on Knox Abbott is delicious. The owners are nice.
There is a park on B Avenue (in West Columbia). I play Ultimate Frisbee there with my friends. So there are a lot of different little parks where you can do stuff.
