    Post Could someone please check this short text for grammar errors and overall neatness?

    The school, the Capital, and the bio-tech lab together have brought many people to this House and some of them have chosen to stay here to work, get married and raise their children, because over the years, this place has become their home. These people have been living here side by side through decades, guarding and looking after the house, taking care of the needs of the household, raising sons and daughters, as many as their house could hold! By the late 80s this neighborhood has developed into a close-knit community of highly-educated, intelligent families PhDs, engineers, musicians, grad and post-grad students.

    For years gone by, countless musicians, poets and artists have visited and settled in the house, and have been inspired by its traditions and people. This acted as a stimulus for the residents to set up their own museum dedicated to telling the remarkable story of the house and the famous people who have lived and worked here - among them the renowned writer, Venedikt Yerofeyev, the author of the undying "Moscow to the end of the Line".

    The young people of the house run their own art gallery of contemporary art, featuring photography, crafts and artwork by local artists.

    "through decades" should read "over the decades". "Undying" should read "eternal". "art gallery of contemporary art" should read "gallery of contemporary art."
