I feel very safe in the area I live in. The police are always around, and they will come to your rescue if you need them quickly. There are not many crime activities that go on throughout the area, which is a very good thing! I would say the biggest problem in the area is driving under the influence and stealing, which is not as extreme as murder. Overall, we have a great society with caring safety officials!

The area I live in is not the most exciting place to be, but since I have been living here my whole life, it is a place I have grown to love! The atmosphere is very inviting, and the people here are generally very generous and kind towards others. I do not mind living here at all, but I plan on moving to a place that is warm because the weather here is not always ideal for me!
The housing in my area is definitely suitable for people to live in. I come from a middle class family and most of the families around me are from the middle or lower class. Although the housing is small with small backyards, people around this neighborhood usually keep their front lawns nicely landscaped, I am not sure about the insides of their houses. However, there is a nice side and a not so nice side to my neighborhood. One half of my neighborhood is a newer part, and the other part is an older section. The cost to maintain housing in this area is very affordable for all classes.
