The demographics have sharply changed in the last 15 years. Five to ten years back I was experiencing a persistent problem with various car stereos (I recall 3) being stolen, and my car back windshield was shattered twice. But that has died down in the last 5 years. A major problem is for me is parking availability. I also wouldn't recommend the local neighborhood elementary school.

Neighborhood is getting worse as crime is increasing. Terrible public schools. Lack of jobs. Drivers drive fast and unsafe.
I would like to see that less trash around the neighborhood. What I like about Oxford Circle is that there is a lot of stores, which makes the stores more accessible.
