Excellent affordable neighborhood with the best housing stock in the city. It is diverse, stable and has a strong community.

More jobs in the community and less liquor stores. The streets are very bad in this community as well.
I would like to see my kids able to play outside without worrying about if they might get hit by a speeding out of control car or a stray bullet.
