Local Reviews

We are right across from a park, super close to grocery stores, close to public transportation. Trader Joe's is nearby. There's a couple museums in walking distance. We like to travel a little further for food or drinks

It is around the corner from restaurants, shopping and public transit. It is very convenient to good running areas and workout class s.

I love that things are close by. I love the coffee shops nearby, I love going to the parks around me on the weekend.

I like to walk every morning outside my house with my son and go to the store every morning and buy him many things

I like the location of my home, as I live near a great grocery store and pharmacy and a 10-15 minute walk to all the city sights I enjoy. It's close to alot of restaurants also.

My neighborhood is very convenient for shopping with schools and large shopping malls nearby, and there are several bars within walking distance, which is a good place for me and my family to take a break.
