Local Reviews

I enjoy the diverse cultures I am surrounded by. I also enjoy the proximity I have to everything including stores, bars, public transportation, bakeries, and restaurants. I also find the music I am surrounded by to be different and enjoyable.

I love that Dunkin is so close to my house. I love going to the restaurants near my house or the mall.

I only like it because its not so far from my job. My apartment is nice too but some people in the building are not too nice

There are a lot of restaurants. There is cultural diversity. There are loads of trees and parks near by.

I love how everyone knows each other and watches out for each other. And there's a bit of everything in walking distance from the neighborhood.

It's a busy and quiet at the same time.I don't have a favorite local business. I enjoy anywhere where there are decent drinks and good apetizers.
