I like living in the area, it is a good place to grow up in. This is probably my third favorite place to live, although I've only visited the other two places.

The neighborhood I'm in used to be a scary part of town, but a little before I lived here it cleaned up and is fairly safe. Police are around and there when needed, but I don't often see them patrolling.
better public transportation especially at night
