Local Reviews

Stores are in walking distance and conveniet transportation to get places in the area by public transportation. Also have hospital and school close by.

My building. I live in a newer Section-8 building. The neighborhood is dead. There was a murder/robbery in a nearby pizza place. There is lots of prostitution.

Close to nice parks and restaurants. Walkable. Near a school. Some neighbors have lived here a long time.

My neighbors are nice. I live right next to the park. The security cameras that are installed everywhere.

I like going to the park. I like going out to eat. I also like to shop. I really do not do anything else. I just stay at home.

We like that some of our favorite places to eat are within walking distance and bars are also within walking distance.
