Moved here a year ago as an owner and it is so welcoming, so quiet and everyone is so friendly and well behaved, no loud noises, no issues. There is a deli or 2 on the hill I believe but at the very bottom is dunkin donuts, a very cute diner, chase bank on the strip as well as Rite aid and everything you need & we have a park just a minute away! Relaxing on the hill! I love it

Since it is a small town, the people that you would go to middle school with were most likely going to be the same people you went to high school with. A good thing about this town is that they typically have a little festival before the school year started which was the last hurrah of summer. That is a nice touch that the town made that connected everyone.
Its a really small beautiful neighbourhood,very quiet on the hill.Very friendly and very diverse middle class neighbourhood,you have to come off the hill to do anything which isnt super convenient but its just a 5 10 min drive.Streets are kept clean as well they take care of the neighbourhood.Just moved here,love it!
