living in this area has treated me very well, its surrounded by many stores and a mall but the downfall is that is also surrounded by 3 schools so many kids are out. I believe in the future it will be more opportunities for kids because of all of the rec centers opening.
Review Ashland
i believe the area i live in right now is no different from any other neighborhood. From time to time you have people hanging out on the corners but not getting into any trouble just mostly hanging out. There isn't that much crime where i live but if you get closer to the mall there starts to become more crime but that is only because all types of people go to the mall.
Around the area I live are tons of fast food restaurant's such as McDonalds, Burger King, Carl's Jr, Wendy's and the list goes one. Although, I feel like not every restaurant are clean as they should be. Now, night clubs and stuff like that aren't no where here in this area, the majority have to a different city.
