Local Reviews

Police station, library, schools, parks, restaurants are within walking/ riding bikes distance. I like going to the park with my family and enjoying the outdoors

My neighbor is my best friend and there is so much to do here and that is basically it besides the corona

There's a supermarket and subway across the road. Train station and bus stop at the end of the street.
