Local Reviews

Families have been neighbors for years. We look out for each other. The uniqueness of my neighborhood is the family atmosphere.

I love that the park is 2 minutes away from me and I can walk there and even take my dogs. I can hangout with my friends at the park. My school is even close to me and I could walk to it. There are also fast food near me so I can walk to every place I would like to go to.

I like to go to a nearby restaurant with my friends, his food is very delicious, my friends also like it, it is a lot of our memories

There are very big supermarkets and shops nearby. I like to go shopping with my mother on my days off.

I like the access to public transport. I like the relative calmness of the area. I like easy access to the park.

I liked having my wife with me, but she passed away unexpectedly. It is still a decent neighborhood.
