What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Wards Corner Norfolk

My neighborhood is easily accessible to the railway, buses and a couple of stores and pharmacy. We have a couple of parks to walk to and a sitting area where you can sit and relax.

Quiet neighborhood. Grocery stores, several restaurants, businesses near by. Hospital is not to far away.

I like that grocery store is in walking distance. I also like the fact that it's on the bus line. I like that it's a busy area.

Nothing is unique about here except for the fact that it's be your own people doing harm to you. There isn't any local business nearby because it's off of the highway and a railroad track that leads to a marina.

I love that I can walk to my softball games once a week since it is down thr road at the park. I love the small local restaurants nearby.

my neighborhood is really great, we're next to a creek, walking distance from a park and a beach and we have dead ends on 3 sides of the 4 block radius
