What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Ithaca

All of our neighbors are good friends and are employed in very interesting professions. We get together when not concerned about Covid. Many young families and older neighbors in the mix. We are 8 miles from local businesses. So restaurants and such are located in the progressive city of Ithaca.

The air is very fresh air and beautiful views. There is very good education and school. Here is very safe and living cost is very cheap.

I like that it is fairly quiet and safe for kids. Every house nearby has at least one dog which I like as well.

It is withdrawn enough to be relaxing and quiet. Close enough to access all the benefits of downtown/college town life

We have a one way road. And everyone here has and extremely high paying job. We have people exercising every day.

I like being near transportation and having good parking. I'm near grocery stores and other shops, too.
