The view of the bay and the affordability of ocean front property, still.
Why did you choose to move to this house and this neighbourhood?
Cheap and a lot of land.
How do you feel about the expansion of new neighbourhoods in your area?
It is ok. I have a lot of land, so no one can build around me.
Why did you choose to move to this house and this neighbourhood?
To be close to other children for our child to play with and to be near schools and sports facilities.
What do you like about living where you do?
Safety, young couples and lots of children. Very safe place to live.
What don't you like?
I hate all of the parents who block the streets every morning as they drive their obese children to school, often in oversized SUVs.
How do you feel about the expansion of new neighbourhoods in your area?
I think it is positive.
Why did you choose to move to this house and this neighbourhood?
Close to work - walkable, excellent neighbourhood.
What do you like about living where you do?
Our place in Paradise is quiet, spacious and well kept. That wasn't something we could find when apartment hunting in St. John's for an affordable price.
What don't you like?
It's started to attract overpriced, oversized macmansions and the "American lawn" lifestyle.

Affordable (at the time), near the water, good trails for walking, not too far from St. John's.
What do you like about living where you do?
Close to everything: highway, rural areas like Torbay, Logy Bay, etc. Close to downtown, nice new clean neighborhood, close to trail(s).
What don't you like?
Occasional sketchy characters and motorcycle noise.
How do you feel about the expansion of new neighbourhoods in your area?
I hate it. Go away, rich commuters.

Nice house, quite neighborhood & close proximity to frequented establishments.
What do you like about living where you do?
It's not town!
What don't you like?
The fact that snow removal SUCKS!!!!!
How do you feel about the expansion of new neighbourhoods in your area?
In St. John's? I'd like it more if the houses all didn't look the same. If they weren't so far removed from public transit access and amenities.
Why did you choose to move to this house and this neighbourhood?
The view of the bay and the affordability of ocean front property.
