The neighborhood is a subdivision. The positives are there is fresh air, diversity, and close to schools. The negatives are that the homes are close together, there are not many restaurants or shopping centers, nor jobs

Crime is usually breaking into cars and things of that nature. I generally fill safe, but I wouldn't leave my car or house unlocked and everyone knows the parts of town to stay away from
Laurens is a great small town, the only downside is there is not many things for the citizens of Laurens to do.
