It is not the best neighborhood but it could be a lot worse. The crime rates are not as bad as other places. Some neighbors are really friendly and we help each other out from time to time. It is nice to come out and see your neighbors. It gives you someone to talk to about the neighborhood. Although some kids have wrote all over the mailboxes and leave trash in people's yards, the living conditions are decent. For me, the overall rank is a seven on a scale of ten.

There is many people standing in gas stations, trash on sidewalks, road and grass. Many people walking in the streets and at times getting into fights. At some gas stations and parks I tend to see people selling drugs. In a month the minimum amount of gun shots heard is three. In two months the minimum amount of police chases is one. This includes police cars and helicopters hovering over the house. There are many dogs in the neighborhood and since there are many emergencies in which ambulances and police are involved there is a lot of howling. Also, there are many stray dogs. Homes and apartments are beat up and not properly maintained.
This area is a nice neighborhood. There are times when you hear gunshots or helicopters searching from above, but that's very rare. Overall it's a nice area, could do better in recreational activities and neighborhood involvement.
