What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Elizabeth City

Nothing really is unique . Although the neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. It is ideal for raising a family.

Close to stores that I shop at regularly. I like the open walkways so that I don't have to walk through stuffy hallways.

There have been alot of people in our neighborhood switching to solar energy. There are a few non franchise more authentic restaurants nearby.
