Local Reviews

I like the locked entry way to our apartments. We live close to a lot of different resaurants and stores

I like all the trees and that people can walk their dogs in the street. I like that the neighborhood is well lit and people usually have extra garage lights and yard lights on.

Favorite resaurant is a Greek Pizzaria that has fabulous pizza. Right around the corner is a very convenient group of stores including Kroger, gas stations and places to eat. We like going for pizza.

That there are many different neighborhoods. It's near grocery stores and some restaurants. I like going to the bars nearby.

I like that it is quiet. Also the interesting small mom n pop like stores like the antique mall and vape shop on meridian st and stop 11 rd.

everyone knows each other,we look out for each otherand the most unique building is our church it has been there as long as i can remember
