I grew up here and watched it change over the years. In the past year there was a light rail built about 2 miles from my home and it makes commuting within the city more affordable for people.

I wish my parents could live better and didnt have to rent, however it's ok. I work and go to school never an issue leaving out or coming home. One thing I hope to change would including it being more than one way out of the neighborhood.
When I first moved it, the same week there was a shooting however crime is going down. I still hear gunshots and see drug transactions but I am covered by the blood of Jesus so it rarely effects me.
