It's great here because it has been a safe environment for me and my family. I've been living here since I was born and it's always been great here, with no problems in our neighborhood.
Grocery store selection is very poor. Few major chain stores, and the quality of the few is very poor. THe stores generally are unkempt and outdated facilities.
