A pocket that seems to be separated from civilization, even though it's in the heart of Denver. The only good thing is a wide variety of Hispanic restaurants/cantinas and shops.

I think the community in this area has treated me good. First of all there is always somewhere you can go to, for example there are many different religious centers in the area. There are two beautiful parks that you can enjoy. There is a wide variety of restaurants with different cultures and foods. There are events going on every week end. There are soccer, football, and baseball fields almost everywhere. Lastly there is many schools in the area, and their rating is growing over time.
Not the safest neighborhood but not bad either. One of the most affordable neighborhoods in Denver. Very close to downtown and highways. You can find everything you need nearby.
