    "We are friendly with several of our neighbors, we have BBQ'S or have snacks with a few of them. They look out for our place, as we look out for theirs. We definitely watch the "druggies" that come and go from one house across the alley from us."
  • Trulia User
    "I've lived here for almost 3 years with a friend. It's a crowded house, but we all love this neighborhood. There was only a few incidents that had me concerned, but they seem to have been isolated. Neighbors tend to look out for each other here, like the old days."
  • Trulia User
    "It's a nice quiet neighborhood with lots of dogs all around. Some outside in fenced yards, and some inside. Some being walked around by their owners. There are sidewalks to walk on."
