Addison is a small town where in some neighborhoods everybody nows everyone and in other areas the people could care less about knowing their neighbors. However down the Main Street neighborhoods are put behind us and we are all in this together uniting as one town. Lake street is where this happens and lake street is where most of us kids hold our dearest memories. From biking down it, to just looking at it brings a nostalgic feeling to all no matter what the age. It's home to many businesses and the dear birthplace to the family owned businesses. Overall, a great place to live, but an even better place to just make memories in.
Addison be having a good side and a bad side the bad be having gangs, drugs, shootings, robbings and killings. You be hearing sirens pretty much everyday all day. Like there was a gas station armed robbery and a carjacking a few months ago. You can also see graffiti in some parts. And you can see gang members too. Don't believe these kyles and Beccas that don't know a thing about something and just still leave a review on it. Source - someone that actually lives in addison
