What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Norwood

My neighborhood isn't all that unique. It's a 20 minute walk to the town's Central business district. There are some stores and restaurants I frequently visit.

I long it is a small community. Lots of small businesses that people support. Also great restaurants and ice cream

Is one things that I like about my neighborhood is that it's very clean, and some people can be very friendly

I like my neighborhood because I am close to my family all my family lives within 1 mile of each other. I am also in walking distance to everything. There is also everything I need nearby a supermarket, drug store, gas station convieience store, public transportation etc

I like that it's quiet and there's not usually criminals around in this area so you know it's good for families
