Local Reviews

Nothing at all it completely sucks, I want to move fast away. I want to be safe and I want my kids safe

It's very young and hip. There are a lot of food options and a lot of boutiques and shopping options. All my essentials are 3-10 minutes away. It's near downtown and feels very urban.

There is schools very close by. There is neighborhood stores around every corner .And it's public transportation available

Most people in my neighborhood have been living in their house a long time. These are people who care a lot about their homes because they own them.

It's an historic neighborhood. Pet friendly business. hi myself I going to the parks well one of the mini parks. There's a lot of gyms and fitness to engage yourself in. There's always a festival or a little market going on freshly produced of course.

St Angela School is a Pilar of community. It is quiet and clean.love shopping at the family dollar.the neighbor are very friendly.
