I love the Hikes Point area, it is a diverse neighborhood, and a mostly safe one. There is plenty of food and shopping areas, but I would like to see some more good hang out spots.

I love how close by restaraunys, fast food places and stores are all within walking distance. What I dislike is some of the fun down apartments. But we all do what we gotta do.
Friendly, safe environments. School and work places nearby
