I think that North Shoal Creek is a good neighborhood with lots of different places to see and visit, however there is a bit of an issue where the homes are becoming so expensive, that not many people want to live there. I also think that they should makeover some houses, because as you go through the neighborhood, you'll notice that many times houses look very old, and not attractive.

I have lived here in Austin for a little more than a year now, great city. With that being said however, my school is the opposite. I attend the Austin Community College I have become concerned this past year. I have overheard that the police at one of the five branches state that theft is a problem there at Northridge, one of the campuses. At the Eastview campus, I found a .45 caliber bullet on the sidewalk across the street in front of the school. I am now on edge when I attend any of the campuses.
This city has an abundance of businesses. Austin is one of the healthiest cities in America. It has many gyms, health restaurants and groceries, and many parks. This is also a business and college town that reflects the many laundromats. Many ethnicities are here also who have opened their own stores that specialize in many things.
