In this specific street, there is not many crimes due to most house owners being senior citizens. There has been some shootings and burglaries, but not to where anyone getting hurt. However, when there is a crime, police are slow to show up, and it is rare that they do much. What we do see often are ambulances and have had cases where senior citizens have need medical assists or were found dead.

This community is quite due to the senior citizens, but is located in a dangerous area. I would not live in the area again, due to the old houses, crime rates in the surrounding area, and low academic achievement. This area is so close to downtown San Antonio that I feel soon the city will by the area, and build more apartments lofts or tourism attractions.
Most people I have been able to get to know have lived in this area most of their lives with family. The area is a comfortable layout and lets homeowners and sometimes apartment complex have there loving pets with them, there are at times some strays but most belong to someone in the community.
