My neighborhood is really nice. Generally, everyone gets along and helps each other out when in need. We all have an understanding about the kids in the neighborhood, property, privacy, assistance when asked. There are people walking around at all times of the day to ensure safety.

As I said before, people have an understanding in my neighborhood, and look out for one another. Kids are always playing in the street, so people area cautious, for the most part, when driving or walking around.
I have never had any issues regarding crime in this particular neighborhood.
