I like how everything is within walking distance here; the whole neighborhood is very pedestrian friendly. I also enjoy how many trees there are. There's trees lining all the sidewalks as well as other plants and some grassy areas

My favorite family member is going to bar or shops and watch movie in theater. We want to safety from covid-19
