There are many stores that are easily accessible in the neighborhood. There is currently construction happening to the library which sucks. The traffic is minimal. But the one thing is the wawa just closed down the street.
There are never any major crimes committed in this area. The only crimes people deal with is stealing toys and bigger items like bikes off people's porches or from their backyards but that happens rarely. I feel very safe in my neighborhood and very comfortable in my surroundings. The police are not around often and when they are it is never for anything serious.
