Local Reviews

My neighborhood is a good located at a main roadway where you can take public transportation anywhere u want to go. There are parks , walking trails,grocery store, and phycisions office and or dentist office.

I love my neighbors and Yue community in general..it's honestly the people who don't even live here out here shooting

I like the fact that my neighborhood is close to everything! It's centralized to my downtown area. You have all the shopping, entertainment, and eatery's.

We are close to several fast food restaurants, pharmacies, discount stores and grocery stores. Most of the people in the neighborhood now are quite but friendly

I really enjoy the sidewalks in our neighborhood which makes it great for walking and running. It's a diverse neighborhood. I'm glad not everyone is the same age, color, or sexual orientation. I enjoy having a trail system nearby and it's close to downtown and adjacent neighborhoods which has great dining.

It is quite and near stores and neighbors are friendly we have a nice pool and nice areas to walk dogs
