Washington Heights Reviews

1
There is a Food Lion, High School, bank, check cashing companies, clothing stores, convenience stores, gas stations, cell phone stores, car wash, Laundromats, and a Family Dollar. This neighborhood is ok, for me at the time, but would like to live in a better neighborhood. Many of these places are about a mile or two to walk to if needed. A few of the convenience stores have people hanging around the entrance of the store. Some of these places are a pick and choose place for me and most of the time I go to Walmart.
