What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bayonne

My neighborhood is a cul de sac. I am in walking distance to parks. It is safe to walk the streets. The homes are high priced and streets are always clean.

Nothing. It's ok. I meet my friends in NYC.Local businesses are nothing special. Take places are ok.

It is a senior mobile home park and residents care about one another. Favorite store, Safeway and other stores nearby. Frietnds

It is walkable. There is a park nearby. The bus stop is right outside of building which is helpful. The bridge is also walkable.

NYC views and waterfront paths light rail to other neighborhoods close by restaurants and bars open late also diversity of people living nearby

The county park is a nice place to take the kids it has a huge playground. Also, the skateboarding area for skateboards. We also have a few other parks that are great for kids to enjoy.
