My grandmother bought this house in 1990, when I was just fice years old. I have lived here off and on since then. The people are friendly, and there isn't much crime considering we are centrally located.

This neighborhood is close to the airport and in the intersection of two major highways therefore there are several fastfood and chain options. As previously mentioned, the neighborhood is predominately Hispanic, specifically Mexican so there are several Mexican restaurants. This is a family area however so there is not a lot of nightlife/bar options. There is also a small Vietnamese contingency so there are a couple of Vietnamese/Chinese restaurants as well. My favorite is the Broadway Noodle Cafe.
There are many stores here that are in great business. For example, stores like H-E-B in my neighborhood is doing extremely well, it is always busy and everyone can get what they need there. Even the family owned businesses do well here like a local restaurant called Spanky's. Being there a few times, I always recall that it is almost always a full house and the customers always seemed satisfied with their meal.
