Local Reviews

It's in the arts district of New Haven I enjoy walking through the Yale university The food carts have awesome food to choose from daily

The parks the treelines and the bike trails and they do the local fireworks at the park and events for kids near local schools

It's quite. The some restaurants about a mile down the road. Plus there's many shops and grocery stores in the area.

Near schools it is near shopping and near the bus stop and near a pharmacy. Near downtown and it is very quiet with mostly older people

I like to go to the market and have a little fun with the people the i now to see and talk together we alot of people to work

I don't really like my neighborhood. I'm currently considering moving . My neighbor is not somewhere I like
