our neighborhood is friendly. wh have olfer people that are kind and nice . our street is welcome to everyone that passes through them.

But I like the most in my previous neighborhood was that it was quiet. I also like that there were no shootings.

It is great to have and ITV is nice. I like it a lot to get it the business I have is to be capable of making things right I like it Good

Closeness to the public transportation, close to my university, quiet at night, walkable to different neighborhoods and businesses.

There's a Dunkin' Donuts close by and public transportation. Also there's a good amount of parking and it's not too far from downtown
