Local Reviews

i dont like anything about this area. if it wasnt for family this area would be highly trash and depressing.

I love the friendliness of all of the residents. I love the detailed holiday decorations during holiday time. I love how safe I feel and close I am to stores and everything.

Fairly quiet. Mostly middle class. Responsible neighbors. Grocery store close-by. A few close restaurants. No place though to take family and friends near this neighborhood.

This is a safe neighborhood. Close to downtown Mexican restaurant. Prefer to take the kids to school.

Quiet. Walkable to restaurants, nightlife. Stores and shopping within 1/2 mile. Excellent public transportation.

I like going out with my boyfriend to the movies that was our first date and I miss him so much and I wanna be with him right now and this is the only way to do so question survery
