Local Reviews

I can't say there is nothing unique. We do have a school nearby with a place to workout and swim. Also, there are a few restaurants near.

I like the house I bought and fixed up. The neighbors behind my house are very nice and courteous. The cops are pretty prompt when you call them.

I like we can drive quickly to services. Our family is also five minutes away from our house. We like being in this part of our town.

I like how quiet it is and for the most part everyone keeps to themselves. There's a mall nearby that has a ton of dining options. We like going to the stores and restaurants over there.

I like that we have good neighborhood watch and protective over people they make sure nothing happen

My circle neighborhood back here is clean and decent but still crime happens. Cars meet for drug exchanges right outside on our circle all the time. We like the New York Pizzaria place a lot. They have really good food. There is a Carry Out that my husband really loves. I think hes messing around with the supervisor there but not much proof. I like going places but never get to go.
