The health fitness in this area is not very good, but there are some opportunities to have a health lifestyle, but the option is expensive, where many people don't have very much money.

There are many apartments around, so there is not a lot of space, garages or extra land. This could be improved with more housing with some more space.
There is a lot of crime that happens in my city, but in a different area than where I live specifically. Sometimes crime happens in my area, but it is usually a low standard.
