I live in Patterson the neighborhood looks nice.... We took the kids to the close park. Fairly new construction houses a lot of parks here. My kids were playing in the bushes hiding and jumping out. When my six year old son pulled out a hand gun wrapped in a shirt. So I we haven't been to a park here since. There are a lot of ADT signs more every day. The good thing is Patterson still responds to unconfirmed alarms some cities do not, and they encourage you to get one. The lower house price means lower class unfortunately. Quite a few loud parties on weekends, sheriff responds to those too. Higher food prices higher gas prices. I commute to Turlock to shop once a week. Oh and here you can watch cockroaches cross the street at stop signs. No I am not kidding they are outside and I did find one once directly under the air duct in the kids' room. I spray outside around the house frequently and have a shovel handy. I taped the vent above my bed closed so I could sleep at night, really I did. Oh so you know taxes are much higher here than Manteca, Newman, and just about everywhere else I checked. I don't think crime is worse than anywhere else but unemployment is around 20% and society is just more uncivilized in general so there you go.
