What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Paterson

I don't like anything about my neighborhood to much crime and homeless poverty-stricken we need more police arrested it's not safe to walk the streets at night especially by yourself

The surrounding prices are very cheap, and a small amount of money can satisfy a family's life and save a lot of money

People aren't as common outside making it relatively safe. lots of homeless people scattered everywhere and lots of beggars. T

The organization, th pizzeria, park and computer center. Also the bar on the corner. And go to the market in the near malls.

There are many markets and have family near, everything I need is nearby so I don't have to go to far places to look for them

There is a high-school around our area that is a short drive away but very good. There are multiple ethnic restaurants around the area.
