I live in a very urban area, with many different types of people, which is both good and bad. In my neighborhood specifically, there seems to be quite a bit of crime. Although I have never been a victim of a violent crime, I do hear about many other people who have been, which makes me walk around cautiously, especially at night. I see police driving around a few streets over (in the main streets) but I hardly ever see police offices patrolling my neighborhood.

I like this area because there are so many different types of people, I love that we have four seasons (and cold winters, especially!). When I was younger, I wanted to move to a more suburban area (maybe Florida?), but now that I am older, I can appreciate the city/urban life and culture much more. If I were to move somewhere else, it would only be because I want to live in a larger city.
Not too much to any type of crime or safety concerns in this area. The police are visible and can be seen driving around during the day or just parked in different areas. Not too much crime due to the location of the street in which most of the businesses are set up. The street is somewhat of a main street, therefore committing a crime can for the most apart be easily seen.
