What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Chicopee

There is a large park within walking distance. We also have several food truck nights during the summer that are very well attended.

I like this neighborhood because I grew up here. It's safe and nice to walk around the block. My neighborhood is also close to the highway so it makes it easy to travel.

It is al retired people.there are no nearby businesses There is nothing but private property homes all good no problems with living here

I like the closeness of resources in my area, like drug stores, convenience stores, grocery stores. I like the nearby playground. In my neighborhood there is a man we call Bunny, who waves to everyone driving by, every day.

There are very nice homes in the areas, Close to 2 schools so a good place for a family to raise kids

The best part is proximity to shopping and the variety of shopping. This is not however, my first choice of a place to live. There are over 20 restaurants withing a short walk.
