    Overall Experience: The neighborhood is gentrifying too quickly and developers are reaping tax breaks while locals are getting priced out.
    • 3
    Crime & Safety: My neighborhood is very safe, but if there is crime it's pretty usually a violent one.
    • 3
    Outdoors: The parks are nice, but often times the lawns are closed, so you can't enjoy them.
    • 2
    Public Services: The city is filthy, the public school system is a joke, and the taxes are insanely high. This is a city for elites.
    • 3
    Weather: The winters have been pretty brutal lately, and the recent hurricanes aren't great either.
