University Heights Reviews
I like how people can be nice/ helpful and neighborly at time, however there are many rude/ inconsiderate individuals that also live in the area. There also seems to be a population of homeless people/ drug users in the are and I've personally witnessed drug users on the street injecting themselves.
Very family oriented, close knit area. Very diverse. Subways are within walking distance. And it also has a great shopping district. You can find parks in walking distances for kids to play. The only down side to the neighborhood may be that it does need more restaurants that are as diverse as the people. Way too many fast food chains.
Despite the noise and traffic, everything else is close to where i live. Example restaurants, ATM, Banks, grocery stores, and boutiques. I have not choose to live here but living here has an impact on me as a young independent undergraduate college student. I always have plenty of time to shop around and buy cheap production without having to spend bounden my budget.
