What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Dickson City

My neighborhood is unique because it is built for larger family's where I live they are townhouse and privately owned and they start at 3 bedrooms. I like the area because it is near a coffe shop and I'm right next to the highway I enjoy taking my grandkids to the parks we have near by

I like where i live because am close to my friemds. I am close to the grocery store and gas station.

I really like my landlord has a pizza shop across the street. I like I am close to grocery store. I like that I am near public transport.

I can catch a bus to anywhere close by. I can walk to grocer. I have a nice river trail nearby. I have a post office nearby.
