There are a lot of robberies, and shootings in the area. It takes several months sometimes years before someone is usually arrested or charged with the crimes. Most of the time they go unsolved.

there are a mix of housing in this area, most of them in housing developments look alike and are built close together. There are not a lot of empty house or abandoned buildings in the area.
I love living in this area. For the most part it's a good place to stay.
