What Renters Like and Dislike About Syracuse

This is a walkable community. You can easily walk to restaurants even for take out. Drug and food stores are right nearby.

The best thing about this neighborhood is it is far away from the city. And it is mostly quiet all the time.

Can get to so many places in 15m or less, shopping within 2-3 miles, great schools. can be outdoors in the summer.

Nothing really , supermarket. Bars and restaurants , I live near a university so a lot of options to have fun

The dollar tree store is only 4 blocks and your nearest store is three blocks and there is also a couple of food restaurant

The library and that is all I have to say and nothing else that is all I have to say that's my opinion
