What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Diamondhead

It's in the arts district of New Haven I enjoy walking through the Yale university The food carts have awesome food to choose from daily

The parks the treelines and the bike trails and they do the local fireworks at the park and events for kids near local schools

I don't really like my neighborhood. I'm currently considering moving . My neighbor is not somewhere I like

My neighborhood is ad large parks. On a bus line, coffee shops schools, and a major grocery store. Near the highway.

Walking distance to downtown. Friends live nearby. It's the hip neighborhood in my town. Large park nearby. Small businesses and restaurants nearby. A lot of restaurants and bars for the size of the neighborhood.

Five things I like about my neighborhood are, it is pet friendly, my bus stop for school is not far, it is not noisy at night unless it is summer time, the neighbors are friendly, and the neighbors mind their business.
