What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Berwyn

There are a variety of small local restaurants as well as franchise chain restaurants. My block is a United Nations of diversity. The schools were exceptional for my kids.

I can always find everything I need in my city Grocery stores and restaurants are also within walking distance. huge clothing stores. we often walk in the plaza with my family. neighbors are friendly and always ready to help. at night very quiet and peaceful, ideal place to live with children

Public transportation lines are reasonably close to homes and apartments. Shopping for groceries is convenient. Senior services are available for most people over age 65 and disabled.

I like that there's a park right outside my building. The pool is also near my home so I could walk there if I wanted to.

There is a local school nearby. They're restaurants nearby as well and many kid friendly parks and local day cares

There are a lot of interesting bars and restaurants. It has a lot small businesses that are family owned by locals.
