Least Favorite Place:
Housing on Pontiac Trail near intersection with Hammersley Road
Why?:
I live on Pontiac Trail. I maintain my home. However, the homes on Pontiac Trail that are near Hammersley Road are an eyesore. Rental property that is not maintained. Single-family homes that look like trash. It is sad that people cannot maintain their own properties for (1) personal pride and (2) the overall appearance of a neighborhood. I tell my friends to drive to my home via a different route so they don't see this mess. Realtors showing decently maintained homes in the neighborhood do not access Pontiac Trail via Hammersley because it is an eyesore. Also, sadly but true, poorly maintained, cheaply rented properties bring crime to neighborhoods.
