There is not a lot of traffic. However, the area is not well kept and I wished it looked better. We should have zoning in Houston.
It's a poor, semi-unsafe side of the city. It isn't too bad; there are job opportunities, basic stores and such.. The only downside I'd say is the people.. There are dangerous people around here.

But I've lived in worse places.
