The area that I live in, I have lived in for my whole life (or as long as I am able to remember atleast) My mom, brother and I moved into my neighborhood when I was one year old and have lived here ever since. I have made lifelong friends from living here, and neighbors that I will always love and look after for, and they are the same towards my family and I. I would choose to live in this area, except I would love a house with a little bit of land, maybe a couple acres and my neighbor hood is very urban and not much room for more then a decent size yard. Overall I would rate my neighbor hood a 8 on a scale of 1-10. It isn't the nicest but also isn't poor! Nice houses, and lovely people to live around.

Crime in my neighbor hood is almost non existent. There has not been any crime in my neighbor hood in about 10 years if not more, from what I can remember! The safety in my neighbor hood is great. I have always had neighbors to look over my neighbor friends and I for as long as I can remember. Very safe place to live, and a cop lives in 2 different cul de sac, so it is a very satisfying feeling having them close by!

I used to live in Tulsa and moved to Broken Arrow in 2013. It's a smaller community as compared to Tulsa, and everyone seems to know each other well. When the residents ask about how your day is going, they seem genuinely interested in the answer. What was once an even smaller community has now expanded in the span of a couple of years with locally owned and franchised businesses popping up around the area. Overall, I enjoy the feeling of closeness and familiarity from the community of Broken Arrow that not only makes you feel at ease, but also like being surrounded by a large family rather than friends and neighbors.
