In my area most of the time things are somewhat peaceful but one will find large groups of people on the corners most of the time during the day and late evenings. In different times of the year, mostly around the winter, people often get robbed.

All the stores around me are flexible. They accept both debit, credit, food stamps and cash. They are also conveniently a grocery store store/deli and supermarket all at once. They enjoy the competition because there is more or less one on every block. Also each of them are unique in they're own way and what you cant find in one you can find in another.
Some people are friendly and some aren't but I'm pretty sure it's like that in other areas in the state. It's not one certain place where everyone is just friendly all the time. There are times where people have their days.
