What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Pittsfield

What i like most about my neighborhood is family friendly. It's in the downtown area near bars and restaurants. I like to visit shops and stores

Nothing is really unique, except a Verizon cell tower that got built without asking nearby residents if they object. Panda House Chinese Restaurant is nearby and delicious, and Burger King is close, as well. With family and friends we drive to events.

I like it because we all mind our own business. Also it's pet friendly, It's usually pretty quiet at night, there's not too much litter either and decent houses around

I like the park near my neighborhood, i go there a lot with my friends and family in the summertime.

We have a general store with great food an price well takes foodstamps an wick. Big y is 5 min car ride or bus stop

With kids this is the perfect neighborhood. It is quiet and kid friendly almost every house has a child that lives there giving the kids a nice group to have fun with outside and make friends.
