How it's mainly quiet and mostly others would respect the boundaries of others, also how close by mostly stores are

My neighbors are a small eatery that serves GREAT food. I love taking a nice short walk to the business.

I'm comfortable and used to my neighborhood and neighbors. I see Myself staying here for another 3 years honestly.

I like the amount of trees and parks in the area. I like the fact that it is convenient to malls and stores.

Everyone is friendly. Mcdonalds. Most fun parks and stuff and dog friendly and pets don't get stolen and good internet and stuff.

Like area since older established neighboorhood. Have trees and traditional mailboxes at each house.
