Local Reviews

The unique thing about the area,low income housing. My favorite business SaveALot grocery store in walking distance.I liked to go Downtown Lexington market on Saturdays listen to the band play with family and friends.

Very quit neighood and clean alot of store near by .. Easy access to anywhere .busy road way traffic all around

Rent is affordable. Stores nearby. School is close, but it's not really safe for kids. there is no place to go and just sit outside.

What I like most about the neighborhood is that it has neighbors who look out for each other. It's unique because it has small businesses tucked away along within the residential area.

I like that there are stores and a good shopping center right down the street and it's walking distance

I like that stores are close by. Also I like the fact they have public transportation for everyone. Also there are many parks that kids can go to
