    "I work from home so I don’t have a commute. If I did, parking is the worst so I would probably use public transit more instead. "
  • Trulia User
    "We have tons of dogs in the luxury buildings around here. We’re close to the park, so walks are easy, but sidewalks get crowded "
  • Trulia User
    "Just walk or take the train anywhere. Very central to anything and everything you need, except the vet. The vet is just far enough to be out of walking distance and you can’t take your pet on the train"
  • Trulia User

  • Trulia User
    "Foremost in Chinatown is living around the different Asian cultures: Chinese, Japanese, etc. In our town, we interact with people of different backgrounds almost daily. There is lots of food and medicine. I'm an avid fan of Asian ginseng so every other week I'm in a store to shop for a selection."

  • Trulia User
    "Since most of the places are within walking distance, walking is the quickest and most healthy form of transportation for me. From the time I leave my night shelther to go to my day shelther, most of the places, like Kinsgton House to St. Francis House are like 1 block from each other."
