Though there are many resources nearby, the neighborhood doesn't always feel very safe at night. There have been some robberies in the area over the years, and the smaller streets aren't always very well lit. However, the area does seem to be improving with some small businesses cropping up.

There are lots of independent local businesses and mom and pop shops in this area, and most of the time its nice. Sometimes depending on whom these independent places employ can either make for a great or poor experience when it comes to customer service. From where I live, you can get almost everything you need in the area like, groceries, gas, convenient/drug store needs, laundromats, etc.
I really like this area. However, I wish that there was more nature and that the neighbors cared more about keeping the streets clean. Overall, all the neighbors are kind, but there is always trash on some of the streets and sidewalks.
