Local Reviews

I like that the neighborhood includes people of a large variety of ethnicities. One of my favorite local restaurants is Modern Diner. It's also a big plus that it's located near multiple bus lines and is a short drive from Providence.

The area. We are off a main street. This street has restaurants and plenty of stores.All walking distance.

I love being able to walk my dog safely. There are plenty of stores nearby as well. It's also much more affordable as compared to Boston where I lived previously.

Nothing good about my neighborhood. Neighbors are nosey and don't mind there own business.no stores to shop at unless you like dollar stores

something that is unique about my neighborhood is that it is very diverse with local restaurants. I like playing basketball in a nearby park.

The mall or parks is good place to go and those are my favorite places to go with my friends. Mostly the mall to shop
