Memphis is a great place in itself. It is the people that make up a community and it is the people that destroy a city. I would love to see improvement in building structure and repairs, better school systems for our children and mere health consciousness. When we change our mindset towards the gift of life, I believe the crime rate would drop tremendously.

The gentleman that rented my house before us never locked his doors for four years and never had a problem. I have never heard of any crime or witnessed it. Police officers are very visible in the community.
My overall experience in this area is a great one ! I grew up here so it is quiet familiar to me . During the course of time more places are being built ,like new restaurants , and malls .Which makes it fun to actually go out and have a good time . Since it's the Sunshine State ( Florida ) , and the weather is always fairly nice , and the beaches are amazing. I really couldn't compare it to any other place , it amazing ! But , if I could live here all over again .. honestly , I would .

I feel that the future for my area is bright , can't wait to see how all the development will come along in the years to come .
