Palmer Park Reviews

Within a mile of my home there are 2 gas stations, a liquor store, a convenience store, a bar, a gay bar, a coney, and an amazing park. There are also a bunch of bus stops for easy transportation. This area used to be one of the worst around, but the residents and municipalities have, and continue, to work together to build a truly unique and prosperous area.

There are many nearby bars and restaurants from cheap diners to 5 star brunch and bar places. La Dolce Vida, Menjos, Coney Island, to name a few. As far as nightlife goes, the area is taking it by storm.
I really have no idea, as I am currently employed outside of the area I live.
