What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Central City

We are close to restaurants and a few parks, we go to hang out. We're also close to public transportation so it makes it easy to move around.

I like to go to the amusement park nearby with my family. It is a place where my family and myself can relax and have fun.

It's quiet. Before I moved here six years ago, I lived nearby my whole life so I am familiar with the area and have a strong attachment to it. Near restaurants, several grocery stores and the post office.

I like how my home has a lot of natural lighting. I like that my home is pet friendly. I also like how my home is Lind of away from the street, making me feel a little safe.

I love that In my neighborhood that my aunt, cousins and dads friends live near by so that we can come over.
