North Beach parents in their late 30s, early 40s

North Beach reclaims family-friendliness
It's a whole new Beach breed - upscale, trendy and neighborhood-centric. This isn't the North Beach of Columbus Avenue, the tour bus expressway. It is little shops and cafes up the hill where they know your name and your baby's too. That's right, North Beach is not only reclaiming itself as a neighborhood, it's - hard to imagine - family-friendly.

"When I opened two years ago, I had so many people come in and say, 'I can't believe you opened a baby store here,' " says Sharone Mendes Nassi, who owns a parenting and pregnancy store, Carmel Blue on Upper Grant Avenue. "But come here at 4:30 for Baby Happy Hour and the place is packed."

When Nassi opened her baby store, her research found that parents in North Beach tended to be in their late 30s and early 40s. It wasn't hard for Nassi to spot the trend. She had her son Carmel when she was 42.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
