There is nothing unique about my neighborhood I live in the hood and the crime rate is high especially shootings

My neighbor is very close to stores which mad it's easy when I had no car, my favorite donut shop walkable. And I like to go to bubble tea with my fiance.

the houses. like going to parks hello and then going to the park and then going to the gym and then going to a party and then going to the pool for

I like my neighborhood because it is central located.Close to Walmart super center and other stores as well as restoraunts. Close to two major highway interchange.

Close to park, continent location , flexible rent with income, fairly safe neighborhood, friendly staff.

I don't know that it makes it unique but we have become part of the home of the college campus. Being a senior citizen, I enjoy the young people and can appreciate when they show courtesy and respect, in the local bars and restaurants, which all cater to the college kids, of course. All the shops, as well, are centered on the 20-30 something category.
