Local Reviews

The neighborhood is old, and the buildings have character. There's a black owned bookstore that always has the most amazing books, I take everyone who visits there.

i like that there are a lot of people my age so i fit into the area well. there are a lot of restaurants, both fast food and nicer, which is nice because i love food .

Easy to get to public transportation, lots of local businesses, great options for food and fun place to host.

The unique feature is that there are many entertainment places around, you can often invite your good brothers out to drive black

I think Starbucks and KFC are better. I often go there and talk with my family. I feel very comfortable

I like to go to KFC very much, because the French fries in it are very delicious. I often go to KFC with my family, and sometimes I go to KFC for breakfast and dinner without cooking
