    "Miracle Mile is quieter than other mid-City neighborhoods, and crime is relatively low, but it’s still Morgantown to be vigilant and mindful of drivers going too fast, even on block with speed bumps."

    "Residents are respectful of dog owners, as long as dogs are on leashes and their owners clean up after them, both of which are true the majority of the time, at least since I’ve been living here. Barking dogs can be an issue, with some residents allowing their pets to “express” themselves for longer than they shouldbefore calming them. This is my only dog related complaint."
