The only thing good about my neighborhood is the stores and they all close early because of the violence in the neighborhood

I like going out of my neighborhood to have fun because it's too dangerous in mine we go out to eat and the movies downtown

I love the people that work across the street. They're really cool and nice. I like how accessible transportation is whether bus or trolley. I also like the wide streets very open.

There are nearby grocery stores and restaurants. MY neighborhood is also close to center city and downtown.

I like the scenery around the houses here. There are also sufficient resources for those who have a way to get around.

I think that it's a nice quiet street, there's lots of things nearby like shop rite and wawa, and the schools are all in fairly close by
