Fridley neighborhood is quiet and clean. The neigborhood I live in has senior citizens, small family with children, and has schools nearby. There is Northtown Mall about 10 minutes away and plenty of stores and restaurants. Overall, it is a safe city with great shops close by.
Close to Nordeast without the high rent prices! Currently renting and enjoying my time here. The parks and Nature Center are great places for the kids.
