This area used to be fairly unsafe because the Marine Barracks were close by and drunken soldiers would cause problems on the weekends at bars and in the neighborhood. It also used to be in a rather low-income area which is generally (though not always) associated with higher crime levels. Our car and house was broken into a couple times. But the area has improved a lot and it isn't like that anymore.

It wasn't always a great neighborhood but it has really become a safe, family-oriented place to live. It is conveniently located and easy to get from there to other parts of the city. It was great place to be born and raised.
Occasional thunderstorms and very humid summers but other than that, the weather is perfect.
