The crime rate in this particular area is horrible. People get shot frequently, and there are other miscellaneous crimes taking place. The police are not around much, but respond quickly to complaints and phone calls.

The atmosphere is not to bad, it is located right across the street from a school so the neighborhood is flooded with children. The only problem is the amount of gun violence in the neighborhood.
There are a lot of vacant houses, which promote drug activity. Some of the yards are not kept well. The houses, about half of them are run-down.
