Local Reviews

I love my neighborhood. It is close to the metro so my commute is easy. I can also walk to bars and restaurants/

I like how young and vibrant the neighborhood is. I like Quinn's on the Corner and Pho 75. I like going to those places, as well as Compass Coffee nearby with family and friends.

Great schools but the neighborhood is expensive and not a lot of people can afford it. Would like to see lots of people move in to bring their talents here.

We are across the street from a national park. Most people are friendly and kind. There is a great pizza place about 10 minutes away.

i like the quiet park near my house and the good neighbors and the school offers a good standard of education

Like the nearby cafe and swimming pool There are many gyms and libraries and so onThere are many gyms and libraries and so on
