    "Quite elderly area. Low coating area. One of my most favorite things about living here are that we are close to the highway but not to close to hear it. The fire station and police delayed down the road and no HOA!"

    "I've lives in this neighborhood for 29 years. Usually pretty calm and kids play outside regularly. The only thing to watch out for is the occasional teenagers vandalizing vehicles and drug arrests."

    "Was a little worried when I first moved into south Norfolk but I have really enjoyed the neighborhood so far. I feel comfortable walking my dog, there is a nice park near by, and my neighbor is so nice and friendly. There is a neighborhood watch group which makes me feel at ease but I have had zero problems or have felt uncomfortable even walking my dog at night. Street lights could be better but not bad. There is a dollar general within walking if I need something quick and the library is VERY nice. I like it here!"

    "It's becoming more up and modern. Cleaning up the streets. More of an older crowd lives in the area. Love the older homes look on the outside but open living space on the inside. I believe the schools could be better but they are pretty decent. "

    "This place is second to none, one of the best places for young children to grow up in, on top of the fact that the majority of families that live here are young families with young children some as young as 6-10 and therer are some older teens living in this area, given that people are not bias in their judgments in regards to this neighborhood nor are racist towards that people of other cultures and races and ethnicities this is a great community! whom ever chooses to live here has to know how well kept these homes are in this neighborhood, the people are friendly their children can be rowdy like any child in any neighborhood but I know all of my neighbors by name and we always have gotten along, and it's like a big huge family If you have kids this is definitely a place where you can expect your children will never be bored, there is lots of things to do here. and plenty of shopping centers all around and literally you have access to almost every highway that goes to almost every city withing a ten mile radius."
