What Renters Like and Dislike About Homewood

My neighborhood is right across the st from homewood park and its right over the hill from downtown bham so Im not in the city but I can get to it in 5 mins

the slogan of three do not. Establish safety awareness, the most important point is to strictly implement the safety operation procedures, the implementation of safety procedures do not discount, do not change, no one tube in all the same, there is no monitoring are the same, resolutely put an end to the habit of three violations, to develop the habit of stupid implementation of safety procedures, before each work to think about how to repeat the safety procedures.

We are just a few minutes drive from grocery stores and restaurants and I do not have a long commute to work. There is a dog park and a playground.

There are lots of small.independent businesses nearby. All the homes are older and not cookie cutter design, but all well kept.

Good location in close proximity to downtown and to everything in Homewood. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by.
