This is a great neighborhood! Yes, I am slightly biased in saying this as seeing that I grew up here. It is a very family friendly neighborhood with several schools available within a small distance with playgrounds and track fields for kids to enjoy. Food is available within walking distance with a variety of options from different subcultures. Another great benefit of this neighborhood is the diversity as you see people from all over the world due to the proximity of the airport. One thing that I believe would help enhance this neighborhood is a parking garage due to the amount of people constantly stopping in this neighborhood it has become harder for local residents to be able to park right in front of their own homes.

The area in which I live is mostly quiet and primarily consists of West Indians. It is also a family friendly neighborhood as there are schools, parks, and supermarkets within walking distance. The crime rate is also low and the overall area is considered to be safe. During special occasions, some people do blast the music which can be disturbing at times, but other than that, it is fairly peaceful. In terms of cleanliness, the neighborhood is well maintained and hygienic.
Great little neighborhood, friendly people and great school choices. Public transportation could be better with bus times being unfavorable but it's not the end of the world. Airport is very close so loud planes are constant which might bother you at first but after a while you don't even notice it.
