Riverdale is a small community of about 12,000+ people. Not very diverse, it is mostly a Hispanic town, but the people are very friendly. The local economy is driven by agriculture and farm work. The climate is very hot in the summer and the air can be very polluted from the dirt and soil kicked up by the dry landscape winds and farmers plowing their fields.

I like that it is a small town I like that everyone knows each other . I think it makes for a very friendly neighborhood environment. However I would like to see more stores available. The couple of stores that are available are very pricey. It makes you want to take a longer drive to go elsewhere.
Small town that makes you feel welcomed.
