Current Resident: Foggy Bottom is a wonderful place to go to school! It has a metro stop, it's not far from shopping at Georgetown/M street, it's extremely close to DC landmarks like the Lincoln Memorial, and its a cute neighborhood overall.

Niche User: I love living in Tucson and going to school here. The community has a very historic vibe and there are many community service events held in Tucson making it a caring community. Lots of business is carried out in Tucson as well showing not only that is a historic community but that it is being innovating and is advancing. This is the perfect place for me to live during school and I would definitely choose to live here again. I have not experienced any issues with crime here despite the common stereotype that Tucson is unsafe

Current Resident: I have now lived in Arlington for 12 years. Their public schools and education system are wonderful, there are eco-friendly and healthy options for those living in the community. It is also very diverse! I would recommend more affordable options for its residents, there is a big population in Arlington that are underserved/in poverty.

Current Resident: As a teenager growing up in Buffalo Grove, the majority of my plans with friends involve eating out with friends at one of the numerous restaurants around the area. There are so many amazing options for food in and around Buffalo Grove that include cuisine from almost anything you could think of. In the summer, I bike ride constantly around the area, and I never feel worried about my safety in Buffalo Grove. In order to explore some activities beyond food and dessert, you may need to venture into nearby suburbs. However, you don't need to travel far to experience pedal boating at Independence Grove, indoor skydiving and outlet malls at Rosemont, and other awesome options to do with friends or family. I've been lucky to attend Stevenson High School, which has given me the ability to meet so many people in a diverse atmosphere. Through my AP classes and the rigor of the school, I know I will be prepare to take on college and beyond. Happy to grow up here!

Current Resident: I've lived in Berwyn my whole live, as did my mother, father, and their parents. The community is amazing and unlike anything I've seen - everyone is so welcoming and warm, they all want to be inclusive! The special events throughout the year make the town especially unique - the Turkey Raffle, the Tree Lighting, the Fourth of July parade, they all bring a close-knit community even closer. No matter where life takes me, I hope to always end up back in Berwyn.

Niche User: Honestly, it's a lovely place to live. Busses make it easy to get around from city to city, and the people are quite lovely. The city (Seattle) is easily accessible and it is a lovely city. The cities around Seattle (Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville) are all nice cities as well. All of them have their own ring to them that makes each one unique. All the people are rather unique as well.

Current Resident: I have b÷n living here for a year and I absolutely love living here! The neighbors are so friendly, and the communitiss well kept! There are plenty of shopping centers offering variety of stores, from retail to grocery to huge department stores such as Target and TJ Maxx. There are plenty of dollar stores in the area. It is safe and provides me comfort to know that I may walk to the store at night without any disruptions. It is an expensive area as far as housing, but I lucked up and found a place for a reasonable price. Great area!

Current Resident: Morrisville is very clean and fresh-looking! It's homey and very diverse. I have recently moved here for work and it was very easy to find my current job. Many people commute to Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill to work as well. I like how Morrisville is right in the middle of the triangle, so everything is in easy access! Morrisville offers many wonderful places to eat as well, and a lot of them are privately owned so you get authentic meals. If you are more interested in night life, downtown Raleigh is just down the road, and makes for an easy way to go out with your friends.

Current Resident: I'm living in South Lake Union through a program that offers reduced rent for lower income individuals and families. Overall it's a very nice place to live. The park by Lake Union and off of Denny Way are great options for those who want to enjoy the outdoors. Amazon HQ is in this area, so traffic can be pretty bad, but there are also a lot of good options for public transportation and walking. There aren't a ton of options for nightlife in terms of clubs or bars, but there are some great restaurants, fitness boutiques, small stores, and a Whole Foods all in the central part of the neighborhood. There are also regularly outdoor events, such as the SLU Summer Markets, events at MOHAI, etc. With that being said, this is a pretty expensive neighborhood, and affordability can be an issue.

Current Resident: I've lived in Bloomfield Township and direct surrounding areas ever since I moved to the Detroit Metro area in 2002. I have no plans of moving anywhere else in the area. This is a great area if not the best. Great for commuting access. You will need a car, public transportation seems to have bypassed most of the area. Higher End stores, malls, restaurants, and people. Higher educated primarily with mostly professionals and retired professionals. The people are diverse yet not really economically diverse. Very safe, quiet, great for schools for children. Clean, surrounded by lakes, and golf courses.

Current Resident: I have lived in this neighborhood for 30 years and I love the proximity of it to all areas of Metro Denver. Where I live is close to the light rail, Highline Canal, and several shopping areas, it's like a mini city in and of itself. The only major dislike I have for the area and the state, in general, is that housing has become so expensive, it is difficult to live in the vicinity of Denver without having to work two jobs or have a six-figure income. Many people are getting priced out of their homes and apartments due to the influx of people moving in and a housing shortage. Also, traffic has become a nightmare!

Current Resident: Swarthmore offers a surfeit of of opportunities for young families. You have access to some of the highest quality public education in the area, you are a 30 minute train ride into the city of Philadelphia, and are footsteps away from the breathtaking campus of Swarthmore College. There are very few restaurants and not many activities in terms of nightlife. However, a quick trip into the neighboring Media or the city, and this solves the problem. There are cute cafes and little shops to explore, along with many markets on weekends. There is definitely a lack of diversity and the houses aren't cheap, nor are the property taxes. However, the old houses are beautiful.

Nearby Resident: It's definitely a cultural niche! People from all walks of life come here to attend school, eat good food, or just hang out. There are many thriving small businesses and lots of amazing food. It's pretty touristy, but also not too friendly to the typical resident: housing is expensive and homelessness is sadly a major problem.

Current Resident: The Greatwood community engages neighbors as if they are an extension of a tightly knit family. I grew up in the subdivision since I was six attending Bess Campbell Elementary School, one of the two primary schools within the area. The families involved in creating the environment where the children grew up has fostered a sense of belonging, diversity, and sportsmanship that have sculpted the safe, hospitable, and active foreground for generations to cherish. As I grew up in Greatwood, the area has become even more charming. More diverse retail units opened to invite people to explore the mix of cultures within the community, a major hospital (Memorial Hermann) arrived to provide ease of patient care, and it even brought Buccee's over from the more southwest fringe of Houston which I truly love! Over the years, Greatwood has become home to another level: one where you settle down and enjoy the serenity of fresh air and free spirit.
