I live near the Mall of NH, and our neighborhood is very safe and quiet. Manchester overall is okay. I attend school in Goffstown, but I hear that Manchester schools are okay. My cousin teaches at Memorial and she says she really likes it. Manchester is a pretty big town (at least for NH), and there's a lot to do. There's a mall, offices, hospitals, a lot of other stores, restaurants, parks, a ball park that is home to the minor League baseball team The Fishercats, a hockey arena where we have Monarchs games and several concerts throughout the year, and so much more. Manchester is a relatively safe town. The police, firefighters, waste management, and EMT staff are very hardworking to keep the town safe and clean. There has been a bit of a problem with heroin this year and the past couple years. Overall, I really like Manchester.
