Overall the area is a good place to live but still needs improvement. Some of the apartments surrounding the houses here are condemned and need to be either torn down or completely remodeled. These condemned and worn down apartment complexes brings the neighborhood down and makes it look dirty and a bad area when really it isn’t... for the most part.

The local businesses in the area are good. In uptown Westerville are mom-and-pop shops which have a variety of products they sell from homemade soaps and fragrances to family owned places to eat. In areas surrounding Uptown Westerville are more popular shopping centers such as Kohl's, Office Max, Home Depot and many others. If you need something you're very likely to find it around Westerville.
The community in which I live is friendly and open. In my neighborhood alone we have walking trails, woods and parks for the children. I enjoy taking my little brother down the street to run off some of his built up energy over the summer.
