I am 17 years old and I have lived in this neighborhood for 15 years. Never once have I ever felt unsafe and being a young woman, that is sometimes hard to find. This neighborhood is so conveniently placed as well. I can easily get to downtown Dallas, Northpark mall, Plano, Richardson, and the Galleria in less than 15 minutes. I am very thankful I have lived here for so long and I am sad to be going to be leaving and going college in a few months!
