What Renters Like and Dislike About Bay Shore

It is close to marina and playgrounds. I can walk to Main Street for shops and resturaunts and my job

My favorite local restaurant is the Oconee Diner. My friends and family enjoy going to the local park which is in walking distance from our house

great neighbors quiet and peaceful plus malls and grocery stores not too far away also plenty of quality reataurants nearby

That it is quiet. That there is a mall nearby. And that there is a beach not too far away that can be accessed.
