Local Reviews

The neighborhood is quite secluded. Besides the highway noise, its peaceful. My daughter likes to play outside and go for walks.

I like that it's close to downtown without feeling like you live in the city. Everything is close by, and it's a dead end street.

There's a very nice white woman accross the street. We agree on the situations of all the unwantables in our area
