Local Reviews

the neighborhood is close to a lot of things, schools, a church, grocery stores, donut shops. Although there are a lot of people they mostly stay to themselves

I actually don't like my neighborhood. At some time it was probably nice but now it's just a place to live. There are convenience stores and a grocery store nearby.

There are lots of places that you can go and having fun like bars and restaurants. And there are many lovely views you can watch and relax. And the buildings is very nice and beautiful.

I like how it is walking distance from my graduate medical campus. I like the coffee shop that is a 10 minute walk from my place. I also like the view of the city at night.

Close to the interstate, bars & restaurants. Also close to 3 grocery stores, a 7-11, Wawa & a Sheetz is being built.

There are walkable streets. Its near a university. There are restarants nearby. Also therir museums closeby.
