What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Highland Park

I like that I'm literally one street from a suburb so I can shop stores that aren't in the city. I like that I live 5 minutes from a Meijer store, which I never used to shop because of the prices and distance.

Everything you need is convenient and the neighborhood is clean, watched.Everything you need is convenient and the neighborhood is clean, watched. Everything you need is convenient and the neighborhood is clean, watched.

I like that there are parks around easy to access. There are stores at only a three minute walk and they are affordable stores

It's central, has nearby transportation and a huge park/nature area nearby, and also is an historic area

My neighborhood is unique because of the socially of people.I like to go to the movies with my friends and family.
