Generally its a pretty quite place to live. But you do have the loud music, fast cars, multiple obnoxious kids, and random crap in your yard dogs. Over all I wouldn't mind living here again. I would just start out by buying a security system first.

you really need a security system and house insurance against theft, for the one's that don't stop when they here an alarm. and some how the police always show up 3 hours later after the alarm goes off. Mind you the police station in literally less than 5 minutes away.
the area i live in is okay and it could upgrade on somethings. If i could do it all over i would still live here.
