Windom Reviews

I have lived in this neighborhood for my entire life and have never had a reason to view it as unsafe or as a bad place to live. Everyone knows their neighbors and the block parties we have every year in August are a great way to reconnect with long-time neighbors and meet people who may have just moved in. There isn't a whole lot of diversity and it is very much a quiet place for families, but despite that, it is great.

There area I currently live in definitely isn't inviting necessarily safe, but it does have a lot of people who are trying to provide for their families and keep them safe. Mostly everyone knows each other in my neighborhood.

What I want to see improve in my area are more parks for kids to play in because i see kids playing in the streets and alleys where cars drive by. Also there are alot of broken glass on the sidewalk that can cause sever damage.
