The place where I live is not the worst, but it could be better. Yes, there are crimes which means safety is sometimes limited. The neighborhoods do not have a neighborhood watch and that affects the safety of many children. I do see polices now and then. But my real concern is what are they doing about the teenagers in the streets and kids out in the night after hours.

My experience in this area overall has been okay. It has it's ups and downs. The general atmosphere is calm, but if I could choose to start all over again, I would not live in the same place. I rank this are a four compared to everywhere else in the country. In the future I hope to see that the rent in some places have gone down and not so many kids in the streets doing things that they are not suppose to do.
My area , is disorganized . Cops are always coming in and out. The Home Association says they are doing something but I still see trash everywhere. The lights bulbs are broken and the neighbors get into fights. The houses are falling apart. The sad thing is that the condominiums right on both sides of my house are brand new , and ours look like a rotten egg.
