Local Reviews

It's family-oriented even though there's high crime. There are stores and supermarkets close by. There are also transportation to and from downtown which is very near if one does not have a car.

The family owned restaurants, the different activites for families with different backgrounds to participate in.

It's got a pot dispensery and tons of black people. Most kids go to charter school and the small stores charge double

it was too good. i am always safe feel. my favorite restaurant is MacDonald and i was going all family members and such a good enjoy

We are right next to the Public Market which has won for being ine of the best public markets. Near downtown area. Near strip mall.

Nothing but school next to got a lot of restaurants next to me McDonald's taco bell and now Popeye dollar general
