Local Reviews

Nothing is unique about my neighborhood. It is your standard urban community. I do like that on the side I live it is quiet.

I like the fact that I have transportation near by. I have grocery stores close to me and I love close to my daughter

Most businesses are within walking distance, very accessible with all the public transport. In the summer, we have block parties.
