Local Reviews

Surrounded by city buildings. Don't like going anywhere in the area homeless everywhere. Gas station near me has homeless inside store and outside hanging around. Packackages got stolen off porch.

it's quite, everyone has about an acre so your not sitting on top of your neighbor, only about a dozen houses, everyone looks out for each other

close to the gas station. that's about it. places to gamble and pizza near by. that's about it for real

The people are friendly and mind their own business. Noone complains and they don't steal your packages

Inexpensive, not worst neighborhood, easy access to public transit. There are nearby stores, technically walkable... And several public schools. The local businesses go either extreme:friendly personnel or discouraging any lingering due to corporately encouraged unpleasant demeanor. It is easy to get downtown and to a variety of local shopping areas and public parks.

The thing I like most about living in my neighborhood is it feel like living in the country. The country is the best place to live.
