Local Reviews

The uniqueness of my neighborhood is its quietness and we are nearby lot of restaurants , groceries, Mals and lot of public transportation and medical centers for emergency

My neighborhood is unique because it is built for larger family's where I live they are townhouse and privately owned and they start at 3 bedrooms. I like the area because it is near a coffe shop and I'm right next to the highway I enjoy taking my grandkids to the parks we have near by

I like where i live because am close to my friemds. I am close to the grocery store and gas station.

The store near my home near my house opened a store, mall in which there are all kinds of commodities, for example, household appliances, school supplies, articles for daily use.

its just a nice neighborhood. I am familiar with it I grew up here. Your are 5-10 minute drive to any commercial place

I really like my landlord has a pizza shop across the street. I like I am close to grocery store. I like that I am near public transport.
