I am in the process of moving my family away from this neighborhood. I am tired of the gun shots, the police racing up and down the street during the day and night, and the upkeep is not too hot neither. I refuse to raise my son up in this neighborhood. We have been living here for 3 1/2 years and my son has yet to attend the neighborhood school.

We need more accessible resources for our youth. We have a great park and building for after school activities, but the building isn't properly utilized. There have also been many times where I have found needles and condoms on the playground where I take my son. The neighborhood is also a food desert, however that is changing with the inclusion of organic foods at the nearest grocery story. Overall, it has potential to be great, if given enough time and effort.
The neighborhood is okay to live in if you're careful. There were instances where cars would get stolen, but again if you can be careful in this area you should be fine. I haven't had any issues in going home a bit late, but you should still be cautious at night.
