What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Capitol Heights

Since the area is in downtown a lot of restaurants and coffee shops are usually walking and/or biking distance from my house. It's a quiet neighborhood so not too many noise complaints or issues of the sort to report.

I'm it sure okay it's rural small town I guess this one minimum rule is stuuuuuuuuupid af okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

It is a mixture of different races of people. that is good. fast food close buy, dollar stores close by. gas stations close by.

What I like most about my neighborhood is people do watch out for each other in my neighborhood. It seems like some things have been taken from peoples cars and garages.

There is a mall near by lots of car dealerships and there is lots of food places.also there is a shopping mall less than a mile away so your able to get all your shopping stuff done.

it is a elderly resident living area and black community. TGIF, it is fun, mature, great food and drinks. I like going with my family to Denny's and the movies.
