East Village Reviews

1
In comparison to other cities of it's size, it tends to be about average and nothing really stands out. Cities like these can be found all over and I personally think I could find somewhere just as good with more pleasing weather conditions. As for potential growth, I feel as if the west side is going to grow exponentially but where I'm currently located has come to a business growth standstill.
