Local Reviews

The neighbors look out for eachother, it is quiet (no huge parties), there have been not many car break ins.

quiet street, short drive to places, good place to take walks, people here like to talk to other people and they are really nice.

not sure, and i don't go out much. I really don't have friends. Nearby or at all. That's what happens sometimes.

The people are very nice, I like how I can meet lots of different people. The shape of the building is very unique. There are many places you can walk to also.

I like that it is not infested with drugs like some others in the town. Most people also take care of their yards and are friendly.
