Local Reviews

There is a few food options down the street me and my kids like popeyes and to shop and eat at Popeyes it's pretty good

I've been here my whole life. There really isn't bars or anything within my neighborhood so have to travel away to go to any of that

Easy to get to public transportation, lots of local businesses, great options for food and fun place to host.

Neighbors look out for each other, but not invasive. My power was out, and neighbors checked in on me! Surbrban area, so no business, restaurants in walking distance. Great schools in the area. Unique as it has older homes and lots of trees.

There's nothing about unique where I live the apartments are run down streets are run down people that live here run down nobody's got money

My neighborhood is very close to a lot of things, including grocery, gas and food. I enjoy having the local pool hall near by. The neighbors are very kind.
