The area is nice and it is usually quiet. There's a small city at the heart of the town and it doesn't really get to hectic for moving around. There has been a slowly increasing amount of violence but in general the people are nice. I'd live here again.

After living in Brooklyn my whole life and having to suddenly move here because of my mom, the convenience of having everything within walking distance is missed.
They have good restaurants, and nice people.
