What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Nitro

What I like most is the safe environment and ability to take walks within the neighborhood. My kids can enjoy playing outside and riding bikes in the neighborhood. There is also only one entrance.

There are many "mom and pop" type places. Many rest Iranians with home cooked meal type food. Many small business shops to choose from as wel.

I like going to the Pool with family and friends because its nice their. me and my family like thte pool
