The only thing I can say I like is my house is paid for but other than that I hate where ai live. I guess public transportation close, fast food close by

There is a community center that does alot for kids and families they he help with food clothes housing and also getting people help with insurance and doctors

I like the fact that there are stores and restaurants nearby and that at the same time it's not so busy. The only downside is maintenance

Closer to some store . More cheaper . What do u like most about your neighborhood, what is uniqueosy about your neighbourhood

I like that everyone knows everybody. I like that you always so protected. Everybody is really kind in the south.

The thing I like about the neighborhood is that we are 15 minutes from downtown Indianapolis. Mug and bun is a fantastic restaurant that serves great food.
