Local Reviews

The most unified thing is I live near to the lake and beaches of Lake Michigan . The scenery Year wound is beautiful Woods and dunes and the lake views are the reason I live here / the beach is course is the activity that brings together family and friends to enjoy life here

There are a lot of places to eat, a lot of places to walk to and shop. There's a bbq restaurant I could walk to and fordham road which is very close has alot of stores .. food, clothes etc.. I live right next to the metro north so I can easily travel to Manhattan and not have to worry about parking. My rent is very low so I can afford to get extras I love like makeup , clothes and shoes

Actually, the police station is down the street with a park for the children, and pet friendly.we are also located about a mile or two from lake Michigan

A lot of food places. Downtown is very close and I feel safe when I walk outside. A lot of good people too they are caring.

My neighborhood has neighborhood stores, restaurants, and places of worship. A lot of my neighbors walk to establishments. I often go to the place to eat a half block from me.

That is easy to get home too and It's a place for families could live at my favorite Kennedy Fried Chicken
