I love my neighborhood. It’s close to everything you could ever want. Downtown, public transportation, colleges, and the interstate are all centrally located.

Over the last 10 years, we have seen an increase of foot traffic in our neighborhood. I like the convenience of it all, but wish city government would aim some funding for programs that provide more job readiness and recreational services.
It depends on which part of Norfolk you live in, I tend to have positive experiences.
