What Renters Like and Dislike About Alexandria

The unique thing about my neighborhood is that it consists of apartments and townhouses. Chick fill and plaza are my favorite. I like to go to the plaza eith friends and walk around the park.

They have the best restaurants. Good food. We could have more restaurants it was in the good places with more customers

We have a new wegmans and a few new restaurants within walking distance which I really love. I like having options

It's a very walkable neighborhood and has a number of parks. We are near a large city park with a pond and baseball fields. It is easy to run and bike through here.

I don't utilize the neighborhood as freely as others (the financially affluent). Can't afford the local businesses, etc.

It's very easy to function with out a car. Farmers market on sunday, nearby supermarkets and shops. Nearby schools.
