What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Stratford

I don't have anything I can think of that applies to this really I mean it used to be ok but it's not that great now I guess

Something unique about my area is that the current mall is about to be demolished and rapper Pharrell Williams is developing a stadium in its place my favorite places in the area would have to be the wawa, 711 and tropical smoothie Cafe. Places I like going are the norfolk southern train museum, the zoo and the oceanfront in Virginia beach.

My neighbor's look out for disturbances and they know who to call . They keep the street safe for our children to run and move around

I like the people, I love my home, and I like small businesses. I love how many things are walking distance and we have a good mix of nature and establishments.

quite. Have good neighbors and we al look out for each other.. I can walk to get a bot to eat for lunch.. I like the location of our neighborhood.

the neighborhood is very friendly lots of cookouts happens and different people can come over. the near by stores are lovely.
