What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Newport News

Nothing really unique. It's full of older people and families. There is a beach nearby. There is a park nearby that the kids love too.

My neighborhood is unique because it has a variety of different cultures there arent many local businesses around i would like more grocery stores , bars and shops in walking distance.

The neighborhood is very clean, no trash on the sidewalks. No people hanging out on the street corner selling drugs. The downtown has a lot of American history and museums.

I like that it is near a mall and many different restaurants. It is also close to another shopping area with more restaurants and shops.

I like the nearby stores is the neighborhood. I like the nearby restaurants in the neighborhood. I like the nearby parks in the neighborhood.

It is a 55 and older neighborhood. There is all kinds of fast food restaurants. I don't go places with friends and family.
