I have lived in the city of Bedford Heights for about almost five years now, and I liked living in the area. There are kind people, and neighbors. The schools that are in the area are very good. Clean suburb, not a violent area, very family friendly. The area of Bedford Heights is also safe, diverse, has good job opportunities for teens and adults. I have enjoyed living in the city of Bedford Heights for these past four-five years.

It's an ok neighborhood, I think the cost of renting an apartment is too high for this neighborhood and the quality of the school district. I live across the street from the police station so I feel pretty safe. There is no night life here and you have to make a short drive to another city for shopping, dining, or activity choices.
They should help out their community more with public issues. Schools aren't the greatest but better than other Cleveland schools around the area. More diversity is slightly coming more into the city which also helps others see more of other cultures.
