I liked the general quiet of Merrydale years ago; however, nowadays I hear gunshots throughout the night, and it can be a bit unnerving. Also, the roads, sidewalks, infrastructure in general is horrible.
Compared to everywhere else in the world this area is small and urban, I see it expanding extensively in the future.
Crime is everywhere, luckily where I live its not as bad as most urban places.
