Westview is quiet when it wants to be. It looks like the perfect "everyone knows everyone" town and that would be great if I didn't always see something negative on the news concerning this area. It has the potential to be an amazing neighborhood. I would stay here to see the progress. But we must work on the crime rate guys! I love when you drive down 128th street for example, you see a house filled with family members playing dominoes, kids running playing with each other, music playing and the teens showcasing their moves, etc. on just a normal weekday! Not even a weekend! There's a sense of family in this area but there's something that needs to be done concerning the crime activity here.... I have faith though 😄👍

I live in Westview, I love the neighborhood its close to everything and I always feel safe. Most convenient stores and restaurants are no more than 10-15 drive. The nearest airport in about 30 minutes away. The neighbors are friendly, always say hello, it feels very familial. I am also a firefighter and work the area so I get to interact with all the neighboring communities.
Overall, the neighborhood is livable, but, not vivacious and growth producing. I have come to this conclusion because when I encounter new people residing in this area, it usually comes to a surprise to them that I also reside here and I am a college student. Needless to say, the educational institutions in this area frequently receive bad reputations due to consistent less than average grades. With the constant annoyance of helicopters and police sirens, it seems that crime has become an essential component of this neighborhood recently. Would I live in this area if I could do it all over again? Yes I would. Ultimately, this is where I got my initial start from, and Was successful in graduating at the top of my class and attending college. In the future, I would love to see the little municipality of Opa Locka come to life. By this, it is meant that I would enjoy seeing more businesses established, less crime, and more recreation.
