What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Cleveland

it use to be a family friendly neighboorhood , too many young renters not caring about the streets or maintaining where they live

These in nothing fun to safely to do at night around here just dive bars and drug dealers udd have to go downtown maybe a lil bit safer and bun but not much else

The things I like most about living in my neighborhood my neighborhood is the privacy of my home and the size of my backyard and the size of my backyard

Schools near by. Variety of bares and restaurants located here. The parks and zoo are not too far some where you can definitely go

I like that there is public busing at the end of my street. I love that I can easily get to stores.

Many restaurants and bars I know everyone. Have fun with family and friends when we go out and about.
