What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Rahway

The rent is cheap! I can walk to Walgreens, the grocery store! I like some of my neighbors! I like going to the parks

There are restaurants, movie theater, shopping mall and grocery stores within 2 miles. Lots of stuff to do

The nearby supermarket is very good, the price is very good, everything is very complete, very close to home almost every day

The Loop Trail where you can walk your dog, run, or ride your bike. Tucson you also have the Rodeo, the Gem show. Also my most favorite thing is you can drive up to the mountains come home and change into shorts.

Local Mexican restaurants. I like walking my dog through the parks and nearby washes. Love walking my dog down to the local hot dog truck for her weekly hot dog.

Immediate neighborhood is extremely compatible and friendly. The mobile home park I live in is very convenient to ALL shopping. Extremely quiet both traffic and human
