I've live in my neighborhood Georgetown for over ten years. I can honestly say that this neighborhood is probably one of the best that I've live in. The neighbors are nice, there's a strong sense of community, and its peaceful. In the evening time, most kids would play outside in the front yard with the other kids, so no child is left behind. There's a fantastic view of the stars at night despite living in the city. Its close to several restaurants and food places, so it's lively. If you don't mind children, then Georgetown would be a great neighborhood to live in!

The overrall experience of the area I stay in is a great environment. Everyone seems to get along with one another and the kids love interacting with each other. It's close to a elementary school which makes it safe for the younger children to get home or for their parents to quickly pick them up after school or if there is a emergency. I love the environment because it is very quiet. In the future, I see my neighborhood progressing towards excellence. I also see my neighborhood becoming better than it is now. I see my neighborhood imspiring other neighborhoods to be the best that they could be.

I enjoy my neighborhood because of its relativity to other things within Montgomery, AL, however I would never purchase a house within this neighborhood, because I do not feel like the house would be worth as much in 10 years. The people here are very friendly, however closely outside of our neighborhood, the city becomes very dangerous. I have been robbed coming home to this neighborhood, but never within its limits. Aesthetically, the architecture is post-modern and simple. Most of these homes were built in the 70s, no doubt, and feature the common Southern Ranch style.
