Local Reviews

I like that I'm close to downtown. I also like how there are many convenient stores near by me. I also like that public transportation is close by to me. During the day, there is security for Temple Hospital that patrol the streets

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's very good for public transportation. This is a multi cultural neighborhood and you can get some great food around here. I don't do anything around here but because the transportation is so good I can easily go somewhere else where it's safer by bus.

The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, you don't go to these places much, you occasionally go to the store to buy food and cook it yourself, you like to go to the nearby park with your friends and familyThe neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, you don't go to these places much, you occasionally go to the store to buy food and cook it yourself, you like to go to the nearby park with your friends and family

We like to play in the nearby bar, the living facilities are very complete, it is very convenient to buy daily necessities
