Local Reviews

The best part of living here is there is always something to do and it is never boring. World renowned locations are within walkable distance.

My doctors office is really close less than 5 minutes away walking. Market and busses are on the corner.

I like the local stores in my neighborhood that are easy to shop in and the local parks in my neighborhood where I can hang out with my family on weekends

I think my community is a very harmonious community, people will help each other, and the community restaurant is very close to my home, if I am hungry, I can eat there directly, the taste is very good, I think it is very cool, I can also go to the nearby park for a walk in the evening

Like to go to the nearby bar, the bar atmosphere is very good, after dinner can go to the nearby park with the family walk, very comfortable

The community is very sociable, and I prefer to go to the local bar and have a drink and go for a walk with my family in the nearby park
