Pico-Lowell Reviews

Santa Ana is a city that is known to be one of the worst in the county. It has a bad reputation for crime and city maintenance. The city has been remodeling some areas and they are much better looking now. If we're to choose again, I would choose to live in a different city.

Back then here where I am currently living was bad there was gang members. There were some accidents but those would happen at night. Now it has changed there is less gang members and it is more safe to come outside. The police took care of it.
There should be a choice between suburban living and city limit living.
