I enjoy the fact that all your grocery stores are very close together, making the town very convenient. I would like to see more restaurants around, there is a lot of vacant buildings that need to be used.

This area is relatively safe. you see police officers driving around checking for danger. Sometimes wild animals come into people's yards
there are plenty of grocery stores to rely on for most basic necessities. There are also many small stores and businesses such as salons, small candy shops, ethnic grocery stores and privately owned restaurants. it is a great mixture of both big companies and mom and pop shops and you really can get all that you need here.
