The area I currently live in is okay but it is not what it once was. I used to think my neighborhood was filled with happiness and plenty of potential but as of recent it seems that it has taken a turn for the worst with the occurrence of multiple robberies, shootings, and violence. If I knew this would have happen to the neighborhood that I learned to love, I would've chose to move a lot sooner.

My only issue is that the home owners association isn't that great and the neighborhood isn't near a bus line.
The houses/communities are great FOR THE MONEY. It's all pretty middle class. Some lower class, but mostly middle class. Pretty much everyone is nice.
