Local Reviews

It is close to alot of stores within walking distance. Also it is on a bus route. There is job opportunities around my area.

I live in a college neighborhood. There are many restaurants and bars unique to try. I love going to the parks with my service dog.

Corner store is about 4 doors away......................................................................................................... from my homeThis store has lots of items in stock

Working class where most of us care about the look of our property. Like that I'm near shopping centers. Public transportation is good.

I like going to parks and stores with my families and friends because we can get some fresh air and hang out as a group. I also like to discuss what are our plans and make small talk

There are mini shopping areas to get groceries. There are several parks in the area. There are several concert venues close by to see artist perform.
