What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Gary

I like that I live in a quiet neighborhood. People are friendly and keep in contact. Everyone usually stays in their home.

We all grew up together ,it's safe and friendly. It's a family thing in our neighborhood. You can't ask for anything else.

Well honestly i dont feel very safe in my current neighborhood resulting in isolation from the surrounding areas in this neighborhood.

I like that we rent a nice big house for our family, and have much more open space in our yard. There's not much else to comment on about it because there's not much stores or friendly neighbors.

I like the shoe shops and the clothes shops they are very good to shop in and they are incredible stores
