What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hamden

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood are: we are on the bus line. CVS, Walgreens, and Family Dollar are on the corner. I have decent neighbors.

Smaller local businesses. Affordable shops for car work, unique items, and thrifty prices. There is a nice park for kids to play at.

We live next to little Italy which is a fun place to go and eat. We can still eat outside less germs. By the subway which leads to other trains and buses

That the neighborhood is quite. The yards are kept up. That there walking trails around close by to use on a pleasant day.

It's very convenient. There is a lot to do in the area. There are local parks and restaurants very close by.

It's not unique. It is on the busline, so we have shopping, restaurants nearby for all. Even a bowling alley.
