Small quite area but has major shopping and has alot of old historical homes I don't have any other reasons so why do u want me to say more

Older with mature trees.lots of families out.they care about each other.we can trust each other.we watch each others kids outside.with pets.waling etc

i live by a park. its nice and quiet, and my neighbors are pretty friendly and talkative. it isnt walkable but there are grocery stores and everything we need nearby

My neighborhood is near stores,schools,churches parks and unique shops.One of my favorite restaurants is an Italian family owned business they have great food and a family atphospire

I like that I was able to find a two bedroom apartment at a decent price and that I am close to a couple different grocery stores and restaurants.

I like the people and my friends cause we get to hangout .I like how clean it is no trash.I like the houses.
