Overall, my neighborhood in Hillsborough has been a memorable place for me to live throughout my later childhood years. My neighbors have always been inviting and the community is something I will miss while I'm in college. It has a nature and family friendly atmosphere that is exemplified through its park and pool area in the middle of the neighborhood. One of my favorite things about where I live is that my house is encompassed by mountains and is surrounded on all sides. If I had the option to move back to Little Rock in the future, I would love to live where I am now, however there are other parts of town I would want to experience as well. Personally, there is a part in Little Rock called the Heights and Hillcrest that has classy and old fashioned houses in well organized neighborhoods. If I were to move back to LR after college those would be options for me as well. Little Rock is on its way to becoming a safe and family friendly city with beautiful nature and scenery.

I like to live where I live now. I moved to Arkansas during 2007 and everything are getting better, because my family now owned a house and the place we lived in are beautiful. I like the neighbors and environment that's here because it's a great place to interact with others. If I could to chose to live here again, I would, and that's why I want to stay in Arkansas for my educational plan.
Although a great neighborhood, there have been a few car thefts, house robberies, and bank robberies in my area. The police patrol my neighborhood day and night and are very helpful and visible when there is a need, however the crime is still prevalent.
