Local Reviews

There's public transportation very close to my house and mostly everything I need is I'm walking distance

I can't see anything unique about my neighborhood. But we do have a lot restaurants and shopping stores, not any bars in my neighborhood. I don't do much travel since Covid 19 pandemic.

I like that there a multiple grocery stores within walking distance. My neighborhood, although in the city, allows me to own a home with a driveway for my car so that I don't have to park on the street.

I like the food in my neighborhood. My neighborhood is lively and not boring it's always something to do

There is many stores near by so you don't have to travel far to get the items you want. Many Caribbean restaurants near by here with great food to eat and enjoy with friends and family. I like going to Brooklyn zoo at the botanical gardens

There isn't really anything I like about here. I just happened to grow up and live here for most of my life. I guess I like the familiarity of the place, but there isn't really anything specific past that.
