What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Ridgefield Park

it's a corner with a supermarket and some stores. there are some bike trails which are nice. the public transportation is good.

My neighborhood is close to down town so we really have a great night life. Their are a lot of things within walking distance which makes for a good night out.

Nothing unique to me. Circlek on one street is cool. I have no friends or family here. I hate Tucson.

its close to pretty much everything grocery store resturant great view of the mountains to the north and south

People are nice, but mind their own business, which i like. Its mostly quiet except for the drag racing late in the middle of the night.

it is quite and most neighbors keep to themselves. But our neighbors will watch out for each other. Music isn't played to late. It close by my work. And not to far for most of the fast food or regular restaurants. Grocery store aren't to far either having about 4 around my house.
