The neighborhood is fairly quiet, several schools are in the vicinity of my home.The area is kept clean and is family friendly, food shopping is very accessible, it is very close to the New England Thruway which I use very frequently. There are several amenites available to keep the children active, and a public library for after school reading.

The accessibility with everything is perfect, everything is around restaurants, notaries, clothing stores, pharmacies. However it is close to neighborhoods with high crime rates but not in this particular area.
Crime is really not really prevalent in the area. Most of the residents are Jamaicans, Hispanics, and Guyanese so they know each other well and are friendly towards one another. However, when crimes do occur it's usually young men targeting each other.
