What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Alexandria

The cafe is very nice and quiet. It's good to watch the scenery and drink the coffee. The food in the restaurant is fresh and popular

I like the people. Sometimes they can be a little not so friendly but we always look out for each other and pay attention to what happens in our neighborhood

Very close to pharmacies and grocery stores. Not a long commute to work. There are children close to my child's age to play with.

There isn't anything n that's unique about the neighborhood. It does have some good people around though. It's super close to most store if you do not have a car. It's also close to the bus stop.
