Local Reviews

It's one of the "safe" streets in our city. My favorite place to eat is TGI Friday's, but the local mom and pop place I liked, John's Pizza is now closed due to the pandemic. Where do I like to go? I used to like going to our mall. Now, I enjoy saying in and painting.

The only business in the neighborhood is the local golf course. There's a good restaurant inside of the course.

I don't have anything I can think of that applies to this really I mean it used to be ok but it's not that great now I guess

I like the feiendliness of the neighbors. I also like how most of the residents are older and have raised families here

Something unique about my area is that the current mall is about to be demolished and rapper Pharrell Williams is developing a stadium in its place my favorite places in the area would have to be the wawa, 711 and tropical smoothie Cafe. Places I like going are the norfolk southern train museum, the zoo and the oceanfront in Virginia beach.

My neighbor's look out for disturbances and they know who to call . They keep the street safe for our children to run and move around
