1. It's great being close to a dog park -- just a couple of blocks away.
2. The blue shuttle line runs all day. Other shuttle lines only run at the beginning and the end of the day. In my opinion, if you're looking at more than a ten minute walk, you should look at shuttle routes.
3. East Rock is probably the least "exciting" neighborhood when it comes to emails from police chief Ronnell Higgins. That's a good thing.
4. If you're going to park on the street, it'll cost you. Also, moving your car in the winter can be a pain, and the smaller streets may be snowed in for a couple of days.
