What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Norwood

There is nothing unique about my neighborhood. I don't feel safe here at all and I feel there needs to be a lot that is changed

Nice to raise a family in my neighborhood. Nice schools nearby. Yards are pretty nice. Have a few nice restaurants within biking distance. Nice neighborhood to take a walk in. Hospital nearby.

There is nothing I like about my neighborhood because I live in one of the worst parts of town this is not a safe place to raise children gun shots go off late at night

My neighbourhood is fairly quiet, which I like about it. It's close to shops and stores so I don't always need to drive to places.

It's a diverse neighborhood with different ethnicities. My neighbors are nice and we all get along great.

I love that its quiet, you can sit on the back porch and listen to the birds. I dont feel scared to go out at night.
