Cross Lanes is a very social and homely town. I love it here. The downside about this town is the traffic. It is a heavily congested town, especially with new restaurants coming in. Other than that, I would definitely recommend living here if you don't mind noise. Everybody we have met in our neighborhood is super friendly and treats you like family.

There's a decent selection of shopping and restaurants, but the traffic can be terrible. Not many roads are connected, so that's the reason for traffic. There's only one park, and it's private. There's not much to do with families other than a movie theater and a couple playgrounds. I do enjoy my church here.
While Cross Lanes isn't necessarily a bad place to live, the quality of living is slowly deteriorating as suburban life is becoming less valuable. When I was young, crime was nonexistent and you could leave your doors unlocked. This has changed as I got older. There has been an increase in stabbings, fights, drug problems, and theft. This is sad because my family has lived here for generations, and this makes me want to move.
