The Hilltop is a cheap, mediocre little area southwest of downtown that's slowly on the rise. If I left the area, I wouldn't move back simply because of the number of people who will randomly run into busy streets and the crime is a little high.

My area is a small area. It has its problems every now n then but it's tolerable. I would not choose to live her again only for the simple fact that I want to move away from this area. Out of 10 this area is a 6.5 for the simple fact that it's not a place to bring a baby up in. In the future I see this place getting better but now right now. Someone needs to stand up
It was comfortable living there, though I'd probably move to a nicer area within Columbus instead of staying where I used to live.
