It is a decent place to live. I've been living here for five years no, and everything looks good. The bus terminal got some homeless people, but they don't bother other citizens. I really like living here.
I am a native of Pleasantville and living here is great. Everyone here is friendly, and pretty talkative. It has been a good experience living here. Pleasantville has a great recreational center that is open to all, and it is a good experience. It gets you involved, and it links you up with people who are also natives of Pleasantville. Everyone is into something positive and productive, and we work together well in our community.
