It is safe , clean , and very convenient for all of your necessities. There haven't been any major crimes in the area in years and all of the local markets, pharmacies, etc. are only a walk away.

friendly community with many people that care. It could be more affordable but it is worth the cost of living here
It's very quiet where I live. I dont have any complaints.
