I was targeted and rob on 4-24-19 at about 1:30AM., by Middle eastern Gange than travel together as a family with Syrian 2 young childern and driver that local and wife and Indian women in black Ford or Chrysler in the parking lot of Asian Emporium. There is triteness but it took 15 minutes for the young office to come to at the seen while the station is 90 feet away the police does not pay much attention since the group of people that committed this acts is stand out of population and the vehicle is out of state (Illinois license Plate). There is no investigation on going and the suspect is got away with my mother gold chain with Buddha and my mother rings.

What I like the most about Manchester is the diversity of the population. The population consist of people from multiple ethnic backgrounds. Due to the diversity of the population there are many different types of restaurants in the neighborhood. However, the thing that Manchester is lacking the most is an affordable gym. There are gyms around but the monthly rate is far too expensive. The schools in the area are good and provide children the opportunity to study various topics.
It's a safe neighborhood that's a comfortable size. I like it because you can drive 20 minutes in one direction and be in the rolling hills with trees and trails, or you can drive 20 minutes in the other direction and be in the city. Best of both worlds.
