Review Beltsville
In Beltsville, we have natural Agriculture where we buy fresh vegetables and fruits and experience safety in the street.
I've had to walk alone to and from by bus stop for 3 years during high school. There were times that it was very dark in the morning and it was a decent 5 to 10 minute walk but despite that, I never felt threatened or afraid. Not even when grown men would pass me. They often even said "Good morning" as I passed.
