The neighborhood I stay in is very friendly quiet close to Transportation however I have my own overall just a good community neighbors always checking in on each other kids playing good together so overall it is a good community
The area is quite people do what they have to do IN peace
Peaceful place
The community I live in is a family oriented community. There's people with family's and there are people who are single and live alone. Its close to public transportation, you can also walk to local stores, so its easy to get around. Its a neat and clean community that is kept up by the residents, who all seem to look out for one another and the children that live in the community. There are a few schools that are walking distance, but if the kids need to take transportation they can.
