I have been lucky to grow up in such a nice neighborhood. It's right in the middle of everything I feel like. I can go almost anywhere I want to in under 25 minutes. There is always kids out playing in their driveways or yards and the neighbors have always been very nice. The cop that patrols the neighborhood makes it very safe and is always around if you ever need help with anything. I will always remember this neighborhood where I have made many great memories with the friends I have made in the neighborhood.
