South Slope Reviews

It's pretty decent where Iive. From time to time new businesses open while others close. Everyone gets along with each other. It isn't as crowded as Manhattan, during the school dismissal in the afternoon it can get frustrating to get around but it is something I can live with. If I could return and live here I will since I grew up here and would like to raise my own family here.

Where I live there isn't really any crime. From time to time I seen vandalism, which isn't too concerning. Police don't often come here as most are law abiding citizens, if there are seen most of the time they are just passing by.
