What Renters Like and Dislike About Ferndale

It's not a good place to hang around.anybd yucky haystack eu highly time of night.crime is to high.you might get shoot

Very pet friendly. Very liberal atmosphere. I feel safe to walk through my neighborhood at any time of the day or night.

My neighborhood is unique because I live right downtown. There is always something going on and a lot of different places I can explore. I love going to brunch with my friends at Bobcat Bonnie. Love going to breakfast at Toast and the bars are across the street from my apartment.

I like being able to walk downtown to restaurants and shops, and go to the farmers market. I also like that my job is nearby.

There are a lot restraunts near by. And a cvs on the corner. Only a few miles away there are several grocey stores.
