The neighborhood is quiet and also, we are near a library. Our school is accessible to parents dropping and in picking their child. We provide safety to all our children. We also invite our parents to activities like school parade, Christmas Breakfast Potluck so parent, child and teacher gets to interact comfortably.
The aloha spirit makes it very friendly.
Question # 23&24 are not applicable for me yet because I have not resided in Honolulu yet.
This area is comprised of college students and retirees. Most the experiences I have seen is that the students show a great deal of respect for the elderly.
I don't know if it's age friendly or not. There are sidewalks so that makes it easier for the elderly. But it's also not a very nice neighborhood that I would see older people spending time in
