Great kills is a mostly white neighborhood that has a very safe feeling during the day, but by the train station can have some druggies out at night. However, there are schools all around and the neighbors all know each other.

Not many natural disasters, the weather provides a nice variety with all of the seasons.
There is a lot of crime and drugs in the area and there is not much to do for teenagers so they are bored and get into doing drugs. I like the neighborhood but not the things that go on in it. Therefore, I don't think that I would live here again.
