In Orlando,Fl, the area where I live currently is not so bad. However, there is a lot of crime that does happen somewhat of a close distance from my house. The neighborhood is pretty friendly, people often greet strangers with a smile even though they have might not seen them before. I would've chosen to live in the place I live now than before since there is a lot more crime going on that side of town. In the future, I do hope to see little, to no crime in the Orlando area. That is honestly what I wish the most from my community since we are in a very bad situation right now.

I currently live in a hotel in this neighborhood which there are allot of. There are hotels every corner and most of them are filled with struggling families, that are just trying to survive another day. There is no place in theses hotels for the children to play. So the children are usually around outside causing mischief. Ultimately this area has a really great school and I think if the community itself offered more affordable housing this would not be a bad place to live. I don't see crime going on everywhere, we don't have regular shootings it's pretty seldom I even hear of shootings. Overall this wouldn't be my top choice but more somewhere around the middle. Its close too shops so shopping is very convenient in this area.
I would choose to live here again ,I rank this are a 3 because its a nice quiet area but a lot of crimes nearby,which affect the neighborhood.For example a store or a mall robbery the people who have rob those store will run and hide in the neighborhood ,which will cause polices to drive by and helicopters in the air looking for the victim.Also the neighborhood has a few people that walks around being on drugs.Compared to every where else it a typical sequence for this neighborhood there's not back to back crimes.What i see in the future for this area is the crimes is going to start increase which will harm the quiet and peaceful environment that this neighborhood use to be.
