What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Westfield

The best feature is that you do not need a car to live here. The main shopping area is a mile away, as is a train

It is quiet. It is close to much shopping. You do not have to drive far ro get into town. There is little crime.

I like that several parks are near by to walk to. The houses are not bad to look at either. And school system is decent compared to other places around.

I like that it is quiet. I like that people say hello to each other. I like that it is close to the highway and my job.

I like how near downtown is so that i can walk to go places or get things done, The stores are all very close to my house
