I have always lived here. I just wish the job market would make a change for the better. It is hard to find a job here, especially one that isn't a minimum wage food/store position.

The area is very small and secluded. There are hardly any new businesses opening. There are a bunch of gangster looking, or homeless people always walking around.

I absolutely love sonic! Mc Donalds sweet tea are great also! Not going to mention the convince of 79cent cokes at a corner store here.
