Local Reviews

It's near a lot of things, such as a grocery store and restaurants. The people seem nice and trustworthy. It's safe.

I like how walkable it is and that there's a lot of accessible food and retail options nearby and in walking distance

I like living in the city. I like having multiple restaurants in walking distance. I like my work being walking distance as well.
