What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Burlington

I like that it's quiet and kid friendly. I like that I could walk to the store if I really wanted to.

I currently reside in the Lake Merritt/Uptown district of Oakland. I am within walking distance of the courthouse; yet there is no noticable increase of police presence. The crime level is currently low (as far as I've been informed). I do reside in an older building which at one point may have been the apple of many eyes. But now it is saved mainly because it provides affordable rent for many who would not otherwise be able to afford such placement.

Public transportation and the streets are very brightand there's a park right around conerand there a store close by

Our neighborhood is close to freeways, schools, grocery shopping and minutes away to other surrounding cities. Very convenient.

I live right downtown and am thrilled that I can do most everything I need to do on foot. I'm lucky to be in walking distance of the library and several restaurants. I also live within walking distance of most of my friends and we all love to get together for meals.

The neighborhood is super pet-friendly and the people that live here are just great. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
