    Overall, I am not very fond of the neighborhood in Battlefield that I live in. Most of the surrounding houses are very run-down and fairly old. The streets are very narrow and it's very easy to run off the road or possibly even hit a mailbox (this hasn't happened to me yet surprisingly). I happen to live on the side of town that is pretty far away from all of the "fun" things to do in Springfield. When it comes to safety, I would say it's pretty safe. The police drive through often, making it seem like they're looking for someone which is a pretty unsettling feeling. But other than that, it isn't too bad. The people are friendly and my family and I have the most beautiful view of the sunset from the street we live on.
    Review Battlefield
    I choose that my overall experience of this area has been great. I haven't put any thought as to whether or not I would want to live anywhere else. I live right on the outside of Springfield (technically in Battlefield), which gives me the privacy that I greatly appreciate, but it also gives me the ability to drive into town quickly and not be in the car for thirty minutes there and back.
    I put that the crime and safety in this area is great. I put this because from what I have seen, the crime is very low overall here where I live, and I normally always feel safe. The police are quick to respond if necessary.
