It would live here again. It is a great place to be if you are interested in being in the middle of downtown, where you can reach everything you need in less than 20 minutes. It is very clean and the air is good. It has all seasons, snow and sunny weather.

I have never been the victim of a crime here, but I know someone who had their car windows smashed and his car broken into. There are a lot, A LOT, of homeless people and sometimes they bug you for money and I sometimes feel a tad unsafe.
Homeless are the reason. It's comforting when police are around, but it's impossible for them to be around all the time.
