What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hillcrest Heights

I like that my neighbors are all friendly and watch out for each other. I like that my neighborhood is close to a highway so it's easy to get to other areas quickly.

There is nothing I like about my neighborhood. I hate the people and the general area. If I could afford to move, I would.

It's an African American suburb and it's very diverse of all races. I like the ample amount restaurants.

There's a park in the neighborhood and that's where my family and me go for a while. There aren't very many restaurants near by so my wife makes food from the grocery store.

I love how everyone comes together and acts as an family toward one another . No gang violence & not too much noise.
