The safety area is okay I can say. It has got much better. There is less fighting, shooting, and you actually see more children playing outside smiling instead of screaming and running.

The restaurants near me are McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Wendy's, and there are small businesses such as pizza restaurants or small cafe's.
The reaction time for the police/emergency vehicles is pretty fast, they don't take long. The only problem I have is the garbage truck coming so late in the afternoon.
