The neighborhood is older people so we all look out for each other. The homes have yards so it's safe for pets to run around in the yard.

It's close to Walmart, Walgreens, subway,and a verity of convenience stores.most of the people who are living in the neighborhood are from this area, they take the time to clean the streets on their own time and the balloon festival comes every year.i like going to the mall and going shopping or Play video games and every once in a while it's cool to see a movie.

It's a very quiet neighborhood. Most of our neighbors seemed very friendly. Glee coexist with coyotes

Older neighborhood with larger lots, houses not so close together. Close to schools, parks, dog parks.
