It has that small, country town feeling to it. Everybody knows everybody and that’s nice. You can enjoy being outside without worrying that something is going to happen to you and children. They can run around playing without having to be constantly checking up on them and worrying.

MONON USED TO BE A VERY NICE UPKEPT NEIGHBORHOOD. NOW IT IS RAN DOWN AND LOTS OF CRIME. TO MANY GANGS
I believe there are very nice business in the Monon/Monticello Area. To get our groceries we go to the local Walmart and everything we need is there or for our fresh fruits and vegetables we go to Kroger. It's all very nice and respectable.
