Local Reviews

My neighborhood is not that unique it's the neighbors that I have. We look out for each other other. There are no hang out spots but we do have cookouts when the weather permits

I can walk to a movie theatre, gym, or grocery store. I love all the boba places in the area. My family and I enjoy eating at super hot Hotpot.

I love living across from a Trader Joe's. I like my apartment, because it has three locks on the door.

good walk score. fair transit. it's familiar. Trader Joe's three blocks away. Favorite bar two blocks away. Passable commercial district half a dozen blocks away.

I live in the city, with good walking distance to everything I need. I am close to friends. I am close to entertainment. I am close to restaurants and bars.

The traffic flow in the community should be in line with the national norms under the premise of convenient residents travel, such as the main and secondary entrances and exits should be close to the municipal road and bus station;
