What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wheeling

it use to be a family friendly neighboorhood , too many young renters not caring about the streets or maintaining where they live

There is nothing unique in my neighborhood. I live in a mobile home. Some homes are decent, but some are truly disgusting.

I think the most unique thing in my neighborhood is the amount stores. There is a lot of restraunts and stores. I like to be close to a lot of grocery stores.

I Like my neighborhood because it is nearby grocery stores and restaurants. It helps people save a few dollars in gas by just walking.

It's quiet; there is a tremendous variety of shopping close by - groceries, vitamins, restaurants, clothing, furniture, crafts, exercise facilities, etc.

I like how a lot of families are deeply rooted in this area and they all know each other, it's a great history here and I'm a part of that, now I can raise my kids here and they can hear stories from back in the day from people who were here
