Overall, my area is decent. All basic services such as, markets, laundry mats, gas stations, drug stores, beauty supply stores and transportation are all made accessible. The atmosphere most of the time is fairly peaceful with little to no violence. There isn't any sense of community due to the fact that a large portion of the population are middle eastern and they stay among themselves, maybe because of the language barrier. The sidewalks and streets are not in good condition, they are cracked and ridged and have caused a lot of accidents. In my future I would not choose to live here because I prefer environments that are up-kept and have a more inviting atmosphere and sense of community.
Violence is not common here, but every once in a while crimes do occur. Usually, for minor assault and theft charges. As long as I stay to yourself and don't engage in conversation or communication with anyone I know ill be fine. The police are sporadic in my neighborhood, I usually see them when something has happened or they have been called to a scene. What I have noticed is a strong domestic violence presence in this neighborhood. I have neighbors that have extremely loud disputes with their spouse almost every other night. Sometimes the police will respond to this.
There are always people outside who are unfriendly. they are either drinking, smoking, and or doing/selling drugs. This happens at various times in the day and its consistent and annoying to the people who want to be positive and have a great future to be around such bad habits. personally i do not have children but if i did i wouldn't want to raise them in such an environment. if i did they would think tat the things going on around us would be normal, and it isn't. I rated my experience as "It's bad" but if i did have children it would have been rated as "It's the Worst".
