The local businesses in my area are decent. The area where I currently live is an "urban" area. Although the local businesses are decent I am able to get anything I need within range. I have a three grocery stores near by house as well as restaurants such as McDonalds, Panera Bread, Dunkin Donuts, and The Noodle Company.

I personally think that living in Hartford is amazing because I have access to anything and everything. I'm a bus ride away from wherever I may need or want to go. The buses run so often, day or night. The amount of restaurants there are - Jamaican, Chinese, Spanish, Italian, Portguese, the list goes on. There's lots of businesses, like dentist offices, doctor's offices, hospitals, schools. I just love being in the center of everything, its like a little world in the palm of my hand. I don't understand how people don't like living in the city, I love it !!!
The amountof drug related activity isnt a place for a family
