In my neighborhood there are mostly multi unit buildings where privacy is limited.The neighborhood most people avoid is the Canal because of a higher rate of crime and fewer amenities. When a rental is listed at an affordable price it is taken sometimes within a few hours.

There are job opportunities for almost all residents but a commute into the city is typically required. Many of the residents who commute are in upper level positions and those who work locally often have low wage jobs.
The local law enforcement does a great job maintaining safety and interacting with community members.
