What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Seneca

I know and get along with all my nieghbors. Everyone is very friendly. Always have a helping hand when I need it

Nice quiet neighborhood, can walk hogs, go for walks. Local coffee shops and restaurants nearby along with stores and plaza for shopping and numerous banks

Close enough to supermarkets actually two of them. Anda gas station right at the top of our street. I like to go shopping with a couple of friends from my neighborhood

My neighborhood is extremely serene and quiet. Close neighbors are very friendly and always make a point of waiving and interests on how you are doing.

I like to go to the store Rix, pretty much walkable to on non-busy days. My neighborhood has lots of people, but they listen if we ask them to quiet down. My neighborhood is the best!
