What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Allentown

I like my neighborhood because it is centrally located. It is near all major roadways. Additionally, there is a variety of stores and restaurants nearby.

What's unique is my neighborhood is literally am {sland. There is one way in one way out and it's private property

The housed are all together and most neighbors look out for one another and get along.My neighborhood is unique because there are all different types of people and there are no problems. My favorite restaurant is Miller's Ale House and I always order the steak and baked potato. I like going to Target alot and go there whenever I can. It is so clean and friendly.

I really like going to the park, the shopping center and the city center. All places in my area are safe. The people are more.

I dont like living here but it's the cheapest rent. If I could move somewhere else more affordable I would. Do not recommend.

its close to stores. Grocery and dollar store. No really noisy neighbors.pizza hut and KFC right across street if im having a lazy dsy
