The local laundry is owned by an Asian couple. They are very friendly to their customers and the local food convienience store is owned by an Italian man. He knows his customers by name and always are laughing or joking around with them, showing a great relationship between customers and owner.

The neIghborhood has changed within the last 15 years. More diverse, but still safe. The only crime that I have witnessed is people checking vehicles for loose change ...substance abuse has been more prevalent. More and more parents have to work.. This leaves young adults home to be mischievous
Many people have a variety of job occupations, ranging from school principals and deans to nurses and doctors.
