Where I reside it's quiet, well it used to be. I wouldn't live here again as I would rather live in the city or a rural area, not the suburbs. The best part about this area is that the number of people who upkeep their front lawn out weighs the few who don't. But as for the future of this area, I see the value declining because the type of people that will come to this area. Despite the recurrence of theft, its inconspicuous and quiet at times, even the dogs are quiet.
