Local Reviews

Everything is close to me, buses , stores , parks , schools. It's great for the low income families.

I enjoy the things kids can do and how much space is in between each house , all the kids play together and the churches are like no other, we have celebrations and we have many things for everyone to do

There's a big playground across the street from my house with plenty of corner stores around the area

It's a quiet place, it has a giant and the harbor I can walk in the night on the streets, the transport is good, the neighborhood has a restaurants, bars, supermarket, you can go to walking to anyplace, the neighborhood is very clean

Neighbors look out for each other; historic community. Lot of historic buildings and landmarks. A few highly respected leaders in the community.

I can afford the rent. I have a small backyard for my dog. I don't need a roommate. There is nothing left to say.
