What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Newport

It is quiet with friendly neighbors. Area has a lot of trees which helps with privacy. As said previously it has a regular police presence and is also very close to stores and schools.

quiet, safe and friendly. Churches are nearby and so are good schools. Many eating places nearby and a good hockey team

my neighborhood is quaint & has some cute plazas to shop at & a local library. I stay home to eat & cook often, so I don't utilize the bars & restaurants very often.

I like that the neighborhood kids play outside. I like that I can take my daughter for walks around the block.

My favorite thing about my neighborhood is the walking distance to everything. Also we all know each other fairly well.

It's run down and not a good place to live. It needs less people in and around the streets. Less drugs
