“I’ve lived in a community where you know who your neighbors are, but you don’t really talk, you don’t engage, you don’t know who their children are. It’s sort of isolated living, and I really didn’t want that,” said Burns-Grant. “[Here] they have a lot of activities that really are throwbacks to what neighborhoods used to be, and I like that.”
