What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lower Northwest Philadelphia

Nothing at all is unique here . There is neshaminy mall around and Dunkin which I love. I like going outside of this country.

Near the Park, 5 minutes by Car to the Suburbs. I can drive to the State Park in 15 minutes. Utilities a low.

My neighborhood is unique in longstanding culture. It is also flexible and eclectic in terms of cuisine

Finally, I ordered a fruit salad for dessert, with fresh apples, bananas and grapes, which tasted delicious with yogurt and honey. I ate happily all night and had a good weekend.

My family and I like to eat at the nearby McDonald's, which serves fast and delicious food. In the evening my family and I like to walk the streets nearby. Several grocery stores in the neighborhood.

I love the downtown street with shops and eateries. I enjoy access to the walking/hiking trail nearby. Neighbors are generally very nice.
