The area overall is not bad but it's not the best neighborhood ether. At night i can hear people firing guns into the air i'm assuming since there are no reports of gun violence nearby. There have been a couple of times in my time here where stolen vehicles have been abandoned in front of our property. The whole neighborhood has a bit of a reputation for not being the nicest, but the particular street i live on for the most part has been peaceful. The neighbors are nice and friendly.

There have only been a couple of times where we personally have had issues with crime, and both times i'm sure have been caused by hoodlum kids. Once where the tailgate of one of our vehicles was stolen, another case one was trespassing in our backyard. The trespassing incident was reported to police and at that point police surveillance increased for the next few days. Since then we have had no issues.
The housing can always use improvement. Unless you fixed your house yourself, housing is still livable.
