What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bound Brook

I honestly drive to Alameda for everything. The Quikstop on the corner isn't exacly a family haunt. The Lake Merritt neighborhood is noce, though it is not my neighborhood.

I like how it's relatively close to the freeway and everything is driveable for 15 mins. Supermarkets are close and restaurants are near by

I like the culture of the people around me and I like the city I like in. Also, it is expensive but cheaper than most areas

It is a bike friendly neighborhood. There are many local shops/restaurants to visit. There are many parks and various places of entertainment
