What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About East Hartford

it is unique in my neighborhood there is a grocery store. my favorite local businesses is the fast food chains avalable to make the nights less cooking. i like going to the park out here it is huge and beautiful views of the entire cityine.

The thing I l like about living in this neighborhood is it's quiet a her at all timesnd people mind their own businees

Don't really know we usually stay in the house I felt someone comfortable with my child walking to the bus stop by herself but as always I do worry no matter what

Quick access to highway, shoppers centers, food centers, restaurants, entertainment, repair shops, parks. I like shopping and finding items easily for house projects.

Area is near highways and small city. Pretty decent stores around. A stadium is nearby for a college, but teams suck.

I like the fact that I have lived here for 55 years and I know most everyone in the neighborhood and I have been a leader in this neighborhood starting a neighborhood organization which is now closed but did things that were good for this neighborhood
