I've lived in Garden City for 15 years. Everything around it is equal distance from home, for example the outlets and mall. The port is also near but the town has a bad smell in some parts when you enter. There are a lot of people and there is diversity so that's nice. It's a chill town.

Small community. Very Educational and very busy. I am always learning and being exposed to different types of healthcare related topics through out the shift. Everyone is helpful and wants to help us learn more and gain a career throughout the healthcare journey.
I love the community of Garden City. It is a small and friendly place to live. The traffic is starting to pick up. We now get that five o'clock traffic. If there was one thing I could change, it would be the Piggly Wiggly that used to be here. I would bring it back because it was cheaper, and the employees always watched out for and was lenient with the children in the store.
