Nothing it is a usual neighborhood. Nothing special really the same old same.irs common I like walking

the parks around my house are kid friendly. i like that they all are walking distance. i go to them often.

there is a high school almost right next door to where i live at. if i get hungry, i could walk to a restaurant thats close by or go to the grocery store by as well.

My neighborhood is unique because it's well-established. It was developed in the 1930's and one of my favorite aspects is that there are no two houses that are alike.

I hope to build some entertainment facilities and meeting places nearby so that my children and I can have a place to relax and have a party. I will feel very happy. I particularly like a restaurant near the community. I often go there to consume because I feel that the prices of the goods inside are very favorable
