    "loud neighborhood. cars with bass play music at all hours and have no respect for neighbors. not safe. people throw trash on sidewalks and grass. robberies happen all the time. prostitution, drugs, not somewhere you want to live. only positive is there is a bus line. "

    "I love the fact the store is around the corner and family live very close by and people are very friendly and quiet street"
  • Trulia User
    "I either walk or drive, about a 10 minute walk or a 3 minute drive. There are main bus routes in the neighborhood though making it very easy to get downtown quickly. "
  • Trulia User
    "The drug and prostitution problem. It’s really getting out of control. I hate when the children are getting out of school and they have to see a lot of the foolishness while walking home. "
  • Trulia User
    "It’s close to downtown, and so there is plenty space to walk your dog. There is plenty sidewalk space to you don’t have to pick where you walk. In the summer the water fountains are running and the dogs love to play in them. "
