    "I have lived in the neighborhood for 16 years. Pros: relatively quiet, close to bus lines, several nice parks nearby, lots of shopping options and both I-5 and 512 close. Cons: no consistent sidewalks, wouldn't leave valuables in vehicles, poor school ratings, litter, transients and prostitutes. Personally, we have never had any problems but I know some of my neighbors have. "

    "Pacific Avenue gets busy around 2-3 pm and during rush hour but if you take the back roads it's no problem, which is easy because all of Tacoma is set up like a grid, very easy to navigate. But some streets are in terrible condition and will mess your car up even if you go the speed limit, stay away from 64th st, G st, and M st, just to name a few. "

    "Cars racing down the streets so very dangerous for kids to walking to school. Gun shots can be heard nearby at all hours of the day and night. Great neighbors near us but transients are high and our car was stolen out in front of our home last year. Would no advise buying or renting in this area. Too many drugs and scary to live here. "
