    The area I live in is a peaceful neighborhood. The neighborhood is a beautiful place. All my neighbors keep the outside of their house tidy. I do have a neighbor who tends to get in fights outside and wake my family up. We are hoping that will be fixed here soon, after all the times they had the cops called on them.

    The crime in my neighborhood is very low. Hardly any "bad" kids come to my side of the town. They usually stay at the north end of town and I am completely fine with that. We do lock our house so just in case something does happen we will know right away.
