I live in the 5 lakes apartment community and it has been so quiet! We see lots of wildlife. It's also a very convenient area. York road runs straight through it and everything is nearby. I'm able to take the light rail directly into Baltimore and hop off down the hill from MICA, my school.

I live in a neighborhood named Springdale, and it was the best neighborhood to grow up in- kids of every age on every street, friendly parents, elementary school with playgrounds right next to it. As I got older, new people moved around the neighborhood and it became dangerous. My friends have been held up at gunpoint, my car has been spray painted, broken into, side swiped, etc.
Cockeysville is a typical suburban area. Lots of families and local businesses. It's relatively safe, very little crime. It is multi-cultural. There are lots of shops, doctor and dental offices and churches. There is also a small strip on York Road that is dedicated to antiques. The North Central Trail, a biking, walking, and horseback riding trail starts in the area and goes 40 miles north into PA. Overall it's a nice place to live. The only drawback is there are not a lot of good places to eat unless you want fast food and the local library isn't that great.
