Shore Acres Reviews
People in the neighborhood are very friendly and come from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds and religions. My sister and I are Puerto Rican and Lebanese so we represent racial diversity in our home alone!
I, personally have not seen any real drama crime such as murders or gangs, but there has been disagreements about the police involvement in arguments that escalates to physical contact wither they have did "the right mind of action"...
It is rare that I see people in my neighborhood exercise, but it is also a fairly quiet neighborhood so maybe I am just missing it. The closest workout facility is a twenty minute drive away which is pretty far. There is a local park that people can jog in, but thats about it. I stay active by playing lacrosse with my younger sister.
