Local Reviews

I like that where I live is pet friendly and my apartment managers are pretty much on top of things if something goes wrong. Public transportation is nearby for those with no car of their own.

Closer to multiple transit options. Not far from shopping. Some restaurants and shops nearby. There are food carts nearby that are pretty good.

There is a library near and there are quite a little bit of restaurants to hang out. There is mall strip that has a lot of thing to do.

It is super close to the freeway so it's easy to get places. The dollar store is just across the street and it's got everything! There are a wide variety of restaurants in walking distance but not many bars.

It is a good neighborhood overall. Lots of amenities like a basketball court and pool with stores nearby.

I like my neigh b Ord on both sides and across and north one. The rest are mostly renters who don't care about the neighborhood or families that have been here 30 years
