What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Newcastle

There are banks, restaurants, public parks, and shops near my house, and this is enough for a neighborhood that is not inhabited by many

This is a good area for businesss. Many services or products within walking distance. During daylight hours it transforms into a good neiborhood. McDonald's, Burgeoning, Dairy Queen and Carl Jr's all nearby.

My neighborhood is located close to many businesss. Everything you could want is nearby. Area used to be beautiful back in the 60s

we near a high school so its good for families that have high school kids. so very friendly for young families

It's a pretty tame neighborhood with very minimal crime at all. The parks are usually pretty open to all people and doesn't really crowd for children.

We have great schools where we live - award winning. There are nice homes, new ones mixed into older neighborhoods. Good size yards.
