Capital District Reviews

3 reviews
This area have proved to be a mixing bowl of all ethnic groups who share one belief in respecting one another. The atmosphere is a cloud where friendships are made around public events and race differences are shared and not hidden in the dark. In my area people acknowledge theirs differences in peace and have safe talks about. This allows all people to liver coherently. Currently I am planning to live here permanently in my adult future. Compared to other areas in the country I find this the best place to avoid race emotions.

The crime in my area is mild. However, police who reasons in a great timely manner provide a great deal of safety. They are often visibly seen on bikes patrolling the area. I believe crime has declined since police have moved to patrolling on bicycles.
