What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Northfield

GREAT small business's downtown, Art and small coffee shops. People know each other, even at post office and other areas.

My area is close to everything like shopping, restaurants, banks and even the beach. Very walkable to all

Very good place to live, good restaurants very close to my home, walking distance good restaurants also one of my favorites

The neighhborhood is perfect for me. Most things are within walking distance to my condo. It is near the beach (across the street) when friends & relatives come to visit all the have to do is cross the street.

Houses have yards. Dog friendly. Kid friendly. Near many different local attractions and restaurants and fairly close to downtown

The neighborhood is pretty quiet, and people mostly keep to themselves. There is not a lot of traffic and it is nice to take walks to the nearby park during the day.
