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 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.

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

I like the nearby park. There are many people playing in the park every day.Especially on weekends, many people bring their children to play

My neighborhood is very peaceful everyone is nice and kind mature well manured close stores i like going to the pool wit my family there a YMCA and YWCA near by

Overall it's fairly quiet and easy to get around. There's some local businesses nearby and it's up and coming, so more coming in which is nice. It gives it character.
