What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Richfield

The thing that is unique abont my neighborhood is that it is mostly black people that live here. My favorite business, the little local store, had to close because of crime.

I like playing basketball at the park and hanging with friends. Dollar store is pretty close by and that is quite efficient.

I like to go to the small mall nearby. Also like just walking to restaurants with my friends and family because there is a lot around.

It's a cozy feeling neighborhood with mature trees, houses that have lots of character, and friendly neighbors overall. Great for taking the dog on walks or going for a run.
