Growing up here and having a single mother is difficult. We rent a single bedroom from my grandma . You know for a fact that you can not be walking around at night due to all the prostitutes. This place is not the worst , but not the best either. Compared to South Central, we'll be okay. It would sure be a dream come true if this place turns out to a decent place to raise children. I just hope that since the education from schools are improving around here, our neighborhood will too.

There is so much gang activity in this neighborhood. Mostly on Jackson Street. You see the police riding up and down the streets , but I still get a sense of being unsafe. Once you go on Bewley Street, it turns into a prostitute sale out. While I go to bed at night, I can hear cars pull in my drive way to turn back to them.
Everything you'd need is generally provided, although there isn't much variety to choose from.
