What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Malden

Convenient to several restaurants and stores. Walking distance to parks and walking trails. I like to take advantage of the nearby restaurants and stores

It is a safe neighborhood, but there is nothing really to do. You need a car. Favorite local business is probably a Thai restaurant, but you need a car and it's a 3 minute drive. I like going to the mall which is a 8 minute drive.

There should be parks, banks and restaurants nearby. I prefer to travel with my family and go to bars with my friends

Is very easy life, we have very locals, is very wonderful live here businesses and comercial mall, it's very easy yo go thete

Nice neighbors. Easy access to the highway. Nearby fire station. Good public school. Sidewalk improvement underway. Public bus transportation.

There is nothing unique about my neighborhood. Except perhaps the lack of trees. It is a typical neighborhood.
