What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Passaic

It is near 2 parkswhere I like to go walk my dog. Aldi, I can catch a train to the city since the train station is like 1/4 mile away.

Stores are close to the house. Walking distance to where we have to go. Great roads family and friends live really close by I love going to my favorite restaurant

What I like the most are the diverse people that live in my neighborhood. I also like the friendly police officers

I like my neighbors the most about my neighborhood. They are all nice people. The town is about ten miles outside of the city and it is easy to commute to work and school for the kids.

More services and funds. Equality and friendship. More light and freedom within the neighborhood. That is it.

People are so nice and caring to each other. We have a lake and a huge public park nearby People can go there any time for fresh air and pleasant walk
