I like the fact this neighborhood sticks together no matter all the tragedies they see, that does not stop the togetherness.

Kids breaking into homes, not cool at all. These parents need to learn how to keep a better eye on their kids. Other than that my street is generally quiet.
I just moved here from PRP area. And as of now I feel comfortable living here. I'm handicap and can walk to the store with a cane. And I do not feel unsafe. People are friendly.
