What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Holyoke

It is a quiet neighborhood. It is close to stores and highway. Most people are friendly. Public transportation is available.

What I like most about this neighborhood is that we live in a hill so we don't have to deal with so many puddles. We live near our daughters school.

The neighbors look out for each other and help each other . They keep their property kept up.quiet street

I have been here all my life so it is familiar. There are nice, reasonably-priced restaurants nearby. There is a nice dog park within walking distance.

It's quiet but exciting, if you need to do anything such as grocery shopping, we have it. Bars to hang out with friends, it's not too far, even a pawnshop right down the road

3 hours distances to get from school to home, so i can walk there cause i live close. everything in neighborhood
