I live near Temple's campus so it's always something exciting around the neighborhood. But my only problem is the middle schools around the neighborhood are closing so it's a little sad to children not in school on school days.

The crime rate isn't bad at all. Since the neighborhood is being renovated the crime has been low. It's not how it used to be.
