Growing up in the city of North Hills , I've seen many thing from people found dead in their cars to homeless people camping out in huge groups under the freeway bridge. What I like about North Hills is that theirs still people here working hard everyday just earn a little cash to feed family. There is people looking for ways better themselves and under all the terrible influence in the streets from gang members, people who succeed here in North Hills have seen what rock bottom could be if it wasn't for education. My overall experience in North Hills has been quite interesting and well some what pleasant as a kid but now its just living paycheck to paycheck and trying to survive. What I would like to see changed in this city is more support for the homeless and more resources for the people of north hills.

I love the businesses in the area and safe parks for children. I enjoy the view of the mountains and the close universities. I like that there is a Walmart in the mall in the north hills and I love the different selections of stores in the mall. I enjoy the peaceful environment and the lack of loud neighbors. I like that there is a autism center nearby and that their is a family community center. The people that live in my community are friendly and are helpful with directions. I really enjoy living in my townhouse because I can easily walk to local businesses and buy street food lie fruit, snacks, hot beverages, and tamales. I would highly recommend others to move into this neighborhood because the housing is nice and it's near freeways and I feel happy when I wake up and smell the fresh air and take in the the sunlight that is visible from the mountains.
It's an ordinary neighborhood but it stands out because of the diversity amongst the people. In addition, there are nearby schools if one desires to attend without difficulty. The housing is quite remarkable, especially in the gated communities. Overall, it's a quiet and safe neighborhood for anyone who prefers a peaceful life.
