Every city has dangerous areas. They are shifting into different parts of the city but public safety seems to do a good job keeping it at bay. Overall, you have a mix of nice cops and arrogant cops.
Its a small big city, second largest in the state. It has a lot of cool niches popping up especially nearing the downtown area. A lot to be explored.
A lot of gangs, gang violence, young children getting shot
This is a generally good area however if there were more places to explore in the downtown area. A traveler wouldn't know where to stop other than downtown to see some good restaurants, find recreational activities, or explore the sights because everything is scattered throughout.
I do not see much improvement overall.
they offer good jobs to those who prove themselves
they have the best businesses around
There is a lot of variety from popular to mom-and-pop shops and there's so many things to choose from.
It could be better with hearing back after applying to jobs but there is availability.
