What Renters Like and Dislike About Buffalo

I love the people in my neighborhood they are so nice and professional. Everyone keeps their lawns clean and kept. We have a corner store very close and have a college that is very close. We have a coffee shop around the corner which is in walking distance.

its not uniqie its just like any other neighborhood. my facorite local business is the ymca. i like going to the ymca

Commuting is easy as well as things are very near you do not need to have a car to live in my cpmmunity

I don't really go out much. I don't know of much to do in my neighborhood especially now with it being winter.

Taking a walk by the water. Going to nearby stores. Taking the kids to the playground and watching them play

My neighborhood has many nice people with friendly dogs. We are close to grocery stores, the Thruway and the airport.
