What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About York

I love that we have a mix of young and old families. It's nice to see kids playing outside and older people taking walks and enjoying nature.

Having a community center connected with tennis courts. Also being a neighborhood where people know each other.

well what is unique about my neighborhood is there is not one white person who own's a store within my immediate area so to speak person tha

it's quiet. there's nothing bad really that have been going on other than wild animals and pets going missing

We have nice parks for children. It's safe to walk through with children. People keep to themselves.

We have a pool but it's small, we have a large area for pets, and we have have a tennis court, park, bbq area.
