What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Philadelphia Philadelphia

the unity in my neighborhood is unique. My favorite local place is the skating rink. me and my family love the skaing rink and bond and have a good timre there.

It is close to alot of stores within walking distance. Also it is on a bus route. There is job opportunities around my area.

The only thing good about my neighborhood is the stores and they all close early because of the violence in the neighborhood

I like going out of my neighborhood to have fun because it's too dangerous in mine we go out to eat and the movies downtown

My neighborhood borders on a large park. There are a lot of small shopping centers near by. It is very diverse with many races living in harmony.

I love the people that work across the street. They're really cool and nice. I like how accessible transportation is whether bus or trolley. I also like the wide streets very open.
