Local Reviews

Convenient location near public transit and subway. the neighborhood is urban and different grocery stores are open.

The school is very convenient for children to go to school every day very happy, is a very good school

My neighborhood is rich with artists and packed with local restaurants. I personally don't eat out at restaurants. 8 do like walking around the neighborhoods and dog parks cause the weather is so nice.

Down town area with restaurants, grocery, and shopping writhing walking distance. Access to community activities. Relatively convenient public transportation.

It's a very friendly environment with lots of fun in it. I love the way we interact with each other in the street.
