What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About East Chicago

I like how affordable it is to live in this area. You can always decorate and create a home in the interior.

Everybody gets along and it great to raise a family in my community everybody gets along well with each other

I don't know I'm never really out much so it's okay I guess I'm not really a fan of being out in this neighborhood

That if I need something that I can go and ask them if they can help me out and I know that they will say yes
