Local Reviews

The thing I like most about living in my neighborhood is I live a street over from my boyfriend's mom so we can just gold or walk in if we like. Also we live close to the local beer shop

Food, bars, restaurants and stores all within a 3 block radius. Quit peacefully area with a small amount of night life around with in a few blocks

My neighbors. They are so kind. The feral cats have become like second set of kids and just the comfort of knowing that the people that have lived here before us no what to expect and what we don't know we go to them about

There are a lot of small businesses and local restaurants. Many people know each other and a lot of families around. The small bars on the weekend are fun

nothing at all is unremarkable from any other street. save a lot the good value grocery store that is not even a block away. the library, if it ever gets reopened over this stupid virus panic,and the movie theater

The people who live on my block are friendly . There is a bakery that I like to eat at with friends . My friends and I also like going to eat at the closest McDonalds .
