Was a lot more dangerous, is pretty close to mueller, so it is becoming more gentrified. Because of this, it is becoming less and less dangerous and less and less diverse; however, some things havent changed yet, like the schools and healthy living.

The area is really quite, not many people would cause trouble for their neighbor or anyone in the neighborhood. Most people have pets or kids so there a lot of playing around so parents are outside checking on them.
I love my house. Even though the neighborhood is hilly, I like the city. I like being able to take the bus and meeting very interesting people there. The city has lots to offer as long as you time it right and don't get caught in miles of traffic. The car aspect is the worst.
