Local Reviews

It's quiet, I love the food around here, I like to go shopping with my family, there are drug stores close

My neighborhood is very unique because it is directly above downtown hartford and is bursting with life. My neighbor is home to numerous Latin and Jamaican grocery stores and restaurants. There is also a community garden that I love To frequent.

I love how everyone knows each other and watches out for each other. And there's a bit of everything in walking distance from the neighborhood.

Has bars, restaurants, and parks that you can exercise and walk in. It's a good place to live and grow.

I like the fact that I'm am close to the train station and stop and shop ,IHOP, poppies and many other stores like tjmaxx

I live by the bronx zoo. I dont have many friends but my favorite shop is Duncan donuts. When I like to grab coffee that is where I like to go.
