Crime was moderate. Schools were safe. Lived there for 14 years and I have all my family close by and the malls and grocery stores were convenient. Everything was close by.

My favorite place to go was the mall, chuckie cheese's when I was little, the park, library, ice cream shop, friend's houses, school was fun. Bad thing was that hurricanes hit hard there and blackouts happen along with robberies.
