My girlfriend and I moved here after graduation and are now working in the city. It is a great location with easy access to center city! It is also close to parks and Dock street brewery!

I love the city I live in because this is what I am used to. I am very comfortable where I live, but of course, there could be some improvements. The potholes are terrible, sometimes traffic is really bad, and the sidewalks/streets are destroyed. Nowhere is going to be perfect, but the people are nice, there is always something to do, and I am in close proximity to popular locations.
Response time is acceptable, but just acceptable isn't good enough in certain situations.
