Local Reviews

It's mostly quiet there's not alot of businesses nearby. You have to walk quiet a bit to get there or take a bus.

Affordable price for rent. Close to the grocery store , not that far to walk. Old buildings that keep history alive.

My neighborhood has a downtown area that has fun stuff to do. My and my dad like to walk around sometimes.

We are halfway between a library and a business district, both of which I consider to be in walking distance. The nearby business district includes groceries, drugstores, and other needed businesses, as well as a hospital.
