Local Reviews

What is unique about my neighborhood is that it is a older neighborhood well established in the community. Our favorite local businesses are the local Walgreens where we get all of our medical needs met and the Chengs garden restaurant where my family enjoys eating

There is a park which will be remodeled and give the kids a better place to play. My neighborhood consists of a lot of rentals but not a lot of bars or restaurants.
