What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Mount Vernon

I like that the neighborhood is friendly. The neighbors always greet each other in passing, and the neighbors directly to my left are very helpful and kind. I also like that the neighborhood is quiet, and I have not heard or seen of any crime. This is a good space to raise my child.

my neighborhood feels relatively safe. there are 2 grocery stores nearby. there is a starbuck's nearby.

I live close to a park and near by to restaurants as well. I like to be able to go on walks also. It's very safe!

The neighborhood has quieted down after thirteen years, since i moved into the neighborhood. The summer months used to be crowded on one block, with noise from car radio's playing till five in the morning, and has stopped.

Favorite local business is the supermarkets. I love going to the parks with my family and the dogs. I love to go to the movies and the malls with my friends.

McDonald's sometimes , I be chillin I be going to popeyes they frys bust but yea ohh and Burger King too they burger fire too
