Review Allen Township
Living in a house is the primary option for most. Some apartments and condos are available. Many of the houses are small, but some are moderate, and a few are very large, especially when you get into lake areas.
I feel pretty safe because I live out in the country. In town, drugs are the primary problem but it's not a huge problem. Some gun violence occurs in the city areas but it's pretty contained to certain areas.
