The area I live in is okay. Once we settled in a couple surrounding neighbors looked at for me and the house. As folks moved in and out there was always one that we connected with. On the other hand those few we connected with left the sketchy and unpredictable persons, young kids included. If I could get up and move right away, I would. I truly see this part of town getting worse and worse.

Well unless the people are willing to change, the neighborhood would only get worse. Its not the worst place to live however it is not the best. Overall things are quiet except in the summertime. I would live here again because getting picked for this place saved my life, so to speak.
Crime is everywhere. Even in the nice neighborhoods. My neighborhood, however has seen its fair share of crime. It's not too bad. The police usually do rounds when needed.
