I would live here again if I had to start over because it is a safe neighborhood and there are many stores around making it convenient for the families around here. It also gives off a positive nature and a friendly atmosphere it is more peaceful around here than in the city. I see many more families moving around here in the future to get away from the busy city to peace and quiet.

If I want a good paying job that will allow me to have a place of my own, basic necessities, luxury items (television, car, fashionable clothes, etc) and an annual possible vacation them I am going to have to go else where. In this area, the jobs are entry level, minimum wage jobs that are causing people to struggle financially. Everyone is living paycheck to paycheck.
