It is easier to find a job here than where i used to live (new york city manhattan) the people here also seem nicer, however the wages are much lower, but the cost of living is also lower which is great, but since the wages are lower its hard for me to save money so i an go back to new york/ pay for college.

I haven't been here long, but everyone so far has been very polite and friendly, also a lot of the stores here sell a large variety of items, my only complaint is nearly nothing is walking distance away.
There ARE many places to serve at eating places around the area.
