What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fanwood

Very quiet neighborhood not a busy long street. But, grocery store is only walking distance. It's not far from grocery stores and major department stores but it's quiet when you turn into our street

Close to park and also close to MRT system. Also hospital also near by and shopping area just 10 mins drive.

It is a diversified community. It's comprised of white, asian and latino families. We'd like go walking to the nearby parks.

Quieter, availability of multiple cuisines from different restaurants, I would like to visit nearby restaurants with my family and friends.

There is a park within the neighborhood. It is secluded and quite enough that no suspicious people come in. I like the local thrift store.

I like that the school district in our area is really good. I also like the the freeways are really close. I also like that we are really close to stores.
