Local Reviews

It's close to stores and it's safe. If anything does go wrong the people rally together to solve the problem. We work together as a team all the community.

Close to bus stop for public transportation. Close to convince store and some restaurants plus pharmacy near by if I need to get there quickly

Our neighborhood has a pool. Its also really just a fun place. I would like going to the pool with my family and friends

it's a corner with a supermarket and some stores. there are some bike trails which are nice. the public transportation is good.

Nothing unique in particular. Some local cousine is within a few miles. A few local park settings are available

We have no crime in our neighborhood, we are about friends and comradery. A nice neighborhood to raise children 'cause we look out for the other persons child when around our property to make sure they are safe. I don't really have a favorite place. I don't care to eat out. We go to places like Village inn.
