What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Ballston Spa

The thing I like most about living in our neighborhood is that the neighbors are not nosy and we have a large yard and we can garden.

There isn't anything unique about my neighborhood. I live in a mobile home park and although the area itself is nice the park management make living in the park horrible

Public health officials have a great friend and a good friend who knows when he got a lil better. The kids are not going to get a chance.

It is small, which is nice to have that community feel. We have some fun parties and get-together a which are nice.
