Local Reviews

there's really nothing too unique about this neighborhood. it's got a pretty cool snowball stand but other neighborhoods that i've lived in have had more things around them

Noting is really unique it's been around for a long time but the updated the building , a lot of the older people have been here since before the hurricane nothing to local but a lot of store in walking distance

The neighbor has become mixed, close to bus stops, churches and schools. I like the convenience of stores nearby and transportation can easily be obtain on streetcar or bus.

My neighborhood is culturally diverse. People just need to care for themselves and others. The food is delicious.

I like taking my family to the park so that we can enjoy the outdoors together. I also love that this neighborhood is a place where we look out for each other.

I like the local restaurants, parks, and small businesses. I can always support them while enjoying myself in the process.
