West Brighton Reviews
My neighborhood is the most peaceful and suburban environment I have stayed at. There are a wide variety of restaurants down the block and everything that from restaurants to plazas are located down the street. Additionally, my house resides in the corner of the neighborhood and it is the perfect location to view the sunrise and sunset each day. This is definitely considered a perfect neighborhood since it is right next to our incredible zoo and up the block, it is convenient to be able to get membership at the Y.M.C.A.
My neighborhood usually does not have much crime as it is usually quiet down the streets. However, there are some teenagers who do at times make ruckus outside of the neighborhood that may appear disruptive to our neighborhoods. This is the only complaint as crime is rare in our neighborhood and I usually feel that I am safe in such a neighborhood.
Many of the houses look similar in structure but there are some odd ball ones out here. None of the houses are abandoned because it is such a popular neighborhood because at times when neighbors decide to sell their house, there is usually a buyer ready to move in imminently.
